One of my favorites from two weeks in Italy. Made in a new-world style, this Syrah was fantastic.

Solid Syrah. Well balanced and true to the grape.

Nose of liquid smoke, bacon fat and black pepper. Syrah from Italy is cool.

Great nose! Tart cherry, peppery, earthiness.

Cortona DOC Syrah 2012, 13.5%.
Bottle tasted in October 2014.
A beautiful wine by very well-known winemakers Marchesi Antinori. Syrah from Arezzo province is truly interesting: rich and enveloping nose, mature red fruits, a little spicy but very elegant.
Full-bodied in the mouth, with smooth tannins. Great body and persistence.

засахаренная вишня, кардамон, немного цветов, мягкая кора. Во вкусе добавляется немного замши. Среднее тело, недлинное. 89/100
