One of the best Syrahs from Italy (not exactly a great compliment) and from one of the best wineries in Tuscany.  Inky purple in color.  The nose has a slight aquarium note and one wonders how long this has sat on a warm shelf (if at all).  Mostly, that is a question because these often don't sell without encouragement from a shop owner or sommelier.  On the palate, it seems much fresher.  Nice acidity.  Black cherry fruit.  Light tannins.  It takes some time but opens in the glass.  A unique expression of Syrah, the vineyards are warm but the profile is a bit cooler.  There is some depth.  Its from Italy so obviously it goes with a wide variety of foods but probably meats would be best.  This retails for around $70.
