DESCRIPTION

With cool summer nights and shining mornings, Cortona’s  terroir produces Syrah of great depth and distinction that can only be grown here. The soil here is the ideal combination of sand, marl and clay. Syrah Riserva is one of the varietal we make that goes through extended oak aging. It is born from both from exceptional soils and climate of our unique region and from Riccardo Baracchi’s passion for the land.

TASTING NOTES

Deep ruby red colour. Great nose of wild berries, cherry liqueur, dried violet and forest floor. Spicy notes of black pepper, cloves, juniper, chocolate and sweet tobacco. Full-flavour, loads of fruit. Pervasive on the palate, warm and juicy with smooth tannins that blend perfectly with the full-bodied structure. Fruity aftertaste and long finish.
