Wrapping my head around this one. Co-fermented Sangiovese and Syrah. Had this two years ago while visiting the winery and honestly had forgotten what it was all about. It's surely intriguing. Soaked fruit, gamey, and chewy.

What? Sangiovese and Syrah Co-Fermented? Peter Stolpman told me this is the only such thing in the whole world (co-ferment Sangio-Syrah), and I have to take him on his word, as I do not know of a place outside of their vineyard sites that ripen both grapes simultaneously. Amazing wine, with a gamey hint on some very tight Sangiovese that is both dried and macerated Cherries. I love this wine. It is gorgeous, unique, and if made in Walla Wall or Napa, would cost a small fortune.

Had this with Peter Stolpman. Delicious, so glad someone is cofermenting Syrah and Sangiovese. This is the only co-ferm of the two I know of, as where else in the world do the two ripen properly at the same time?

Co-fermented Syrah and Sangio, and really shows both. Not yet knit together as a whole, I'd love to taste this in 5 more years. Good material, but disjointed at the moment.

Lovely, on the dryer side, not too sweet but a little sweet finish
