Syrah is considered the international variety that has best acclimatized in Sicily, in particular in Camporeale. Easy to grow, especially if exposed to the south and on high hills, where the ventilation mitigates the torrid heat. Vinified in steel, it keeps the variety/territory link unaltered.
Harvest period: first ten days of September.
Vinification system: soft pressing and maceration on the skins for 15 days. Vinification and aging take place in stainless steel silos with inoculation of selected indigenous Sicilian yeasts at a controlled temperature for 4 months. Performs malolactic fermentation.
The wine is limpid, with an impenetrable ruby red color and good consistency in swirling.
The nose is very intense with notes of red rose, black mulberry, plum, blackberry, eucalyptol and black pepper.
The wine is dry, quite warm and quite soft with acidity and sapidity that frame the elegant tannins. The sip is long.
