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.
