About him: this Syrah originates from grapes harvested "at the apex" of the Canonici vineyard; intense and dense ruby color; references to cranberry juice, cedar wood, English candy, rose water, black pepper, coffee and graphite are clear. On the finish, boisé and licorice memories. Discreet volume at the entrance, enveloping and structured. Perfect alcohol-tannin balance. The considerable length of taste is on aromas of blueberry and pepper.
