Syrah

Syrah is a variety of great interest due to its potential for development in this territory. A slow ripening process exalts the well-known characteristics of this vine, resulting in a wine of ruby red colour with purple hues, an intense and fruity scent with hints of small black berries and spices.

SYRAH

SYRAH

Some say that the Syrah variety originates from the Persian city of Shiraz, others from Syracuse in Sicily, or from Piedmont; its adoptive land became the southern Rhone valley and adjoining regions. At the moment it is cultivated all over the world and is particularly widespread in the warmer regions of the New World. For ten years now it has attained a place of honour between the elite of wines, thanks to its characteristics of high concentration, smoothness, and tannic density, often polished and refined by ageing in wooden barrels. The bunch is elongated, and not very compact; the grapes are medium-sized and oval; the skin is very pruinose, blue in colour, sweet and sapid. It is recognized for its spicy taste, the scent of blackberries and plums, often accompanied by traces of liquorice, bitter chocolate and coffee.
