Cortona Syrah Il Castagnino 2021 Fabrizio Dionisio

Variety: Syrah 100%

Intense ruby ​​red.

On the nose it is characterized by ripe red fruit, in particular that of the dark colored forest, and then of red plum, the undergrowth, among which the juniper berries stand out. Herbaceous and floral notes emerge on the same line, followed by spicy spices, with black pepper on the others. Overall it has an immediate and precise olfactory panorama. It is simply defined as complex.

On the palate it maintains the same tension felt on the nose, it remains straight with good acidity and just as much tannic presence. Balanced and persistent, once swallowed it releases aromas of ripe berries, wild berries and black pepper.

In all its aspects it is an excellent example of Tuscan Syrah in its simplest declination, where the value of the fruit is privileged to the concentration of tertiaries obtained from aging in wood.

Cortona Syrah Il Castagnino 2021 Fabrizio Dionisio

Fabrizio Dionisio is born in Lazio, but now he is Tuscan by adoption. In fact, since the early 1970s Fabrizio’s father bought the estate in Il Castagno in Cortona. In 1992, with the purchase of a second plot in Poggio del Sole, the farm reached its current land expansion.

The vineyards are located in Cortona, with a plant density of 5000 plants per hectare and a low yield of 40 quintals.

After the harvest, carried out manually in 15 kg perforated boxes at the beginning of September, it ferments spontaneously in stainless steel containers with indigenous yeasts. The period normally lasts 15 days, with further maceration on the skins between 7 and 14 days.

It carries out the malolactic transformation in the same containers spontaneously and without inoculation, and refines in vitrified cement containers for 6 months.
