Graffetta 2014 Syrah Sicilia *DOC 750ml

Vineyards can be located at altitude or close to the ocean, like this Syrah, to help moderate the ripening of the grapes in the hot and arid climate of Sicily. The vines were planted on ancient coral bed, as intimated by the design of the front label. Whereas Shiraz from Barossa Valley can be dense and tannic, this wine is aromatic and delicate. Note its intense perfume (wild berries, clove, cedar and violets) mouth watering palate and mineral, peppery finish. Great on its own or paired with rich meats, dark chocolate and Gorgonzola blue cheese dessert courses

Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in steel tank, half the volume gets aged in large oak vats for 6 months, blended, and finally bottle aged for 3 months.

Final profile of Syrah reflects the growing conditions.

Note its intense perfume (wild berries, clove, cedar and violets), mouth-watering palate and pleasantly mineral and peppery finish

Pairing: Chocolate Tart and Gorgonzola (classic); Dolce and Piccante differences and their impact on the chocolate tart and the wine.
