Description

Stefano Amerighi Syrah DOC 2019

Stefano Amerighi Syrah is produced only in exceptional vintages. There's a true reflection of Stefano Amerighi's grapes in this vintage. Ruby ​​red colour with purple reflections. The nose has intense aromas of red fruit, notes of tobacco and spices. The complex, elegant and full-bodied palate offers hints of black olives, blackberries and dark plum. Closes with a long peppery and tempered finish.

100% Syrah. The fruit for this wine ripens at the apex of the de' Canonici vineyard, a biodynamic vineyard in the Cortona countryside.

Pressing of the grapes in the ancient way (by feet). Spontaneous fermentation in cement tanks with maceration for about 20 days. Matures at least 24 months, 70% in small wood and 30% in cement. Ages for 2 and a half years in the bottle.

Ageing potential: Keep until 2030!
