Cortona Syrah Il Castagno 2018 Fabrizio Dionisio

Variety: Syrah 100%

Intense ruby ​​red with large garnet areas.

The nose does not hesitate to show itself in all its glory. Intense and adorably complex, with aromas of wild berries, including blackberry and strawberry, and plum jam. Impressions of blond tobacco and countless spices follow. Cocoa, vanilla and black pepper, and disturbing notes of tar. Even breezes of undergrowth add pleasure to the remarkable variety.

On the palate it stretches between copious volume and solid structure. Excellent texture made of tannins, freshness and verticality, capable of supporting and accompanying the set of softness towards balance. Excellent both for harmony and for the ability to wrap without ever weighing down. The memory that it leaves between aromas of forest fruit jam, aromatic herbs and different spices is very long,

Taken as a whole, it is an excellent example of Tuscan Syrah in its most complex declination, that is, aged for a long time in wood.
