Syrah Maroccoli, Planeta

New

Syrah is a noble Mediterranean grape which gives of its best in bright dry places like our Sicily. Because of this we have a great belief in the future of this variety in our island. This interpretation of Syrah is produced in a modern style, respecting all the characteristics of the vine, from an extraordinary vineyard – Maroccoli at about 400 metres, in an unspoilt area. Powerful and impenetrable, this is a wine destined for long aging

Tasting notes

Sweet oriental spices and a fleeting recall of toasted cocoa accompany the wine in all its tasting processes, now providing hints of sun-ripened black fruit, now with more wintery notes of leather and humus. An enveloping sensation recalls the consistency of velvet with a minty and black pepper finish

Matching

Marinated and grilled lamb cutlets, accompanied by mint or even by an orthodox ‘parmigiana’ with smoked provola cheese
