TASTING NOTES

Plenty of smoke and berry character with dark tea and sweet tobacco. The long, perfumed finish is exceptionally elegant within the context of a fairly powerful style. New oak adds considerable volume, richness. It is a sublime, beautiful wine of exquisite finesse. Full body, silky and fine tannins and a beautiful finish.

Pairings

Syrah, with its spicy flavors, full body and firm tannins, is a natural match to grilled or smoked meat, and dishes featuring earthy flavors such as herbs, mushrooms, and onions. Pair Syrah with a platter of mixed roasted meats like pork, rabbit, poultry, and fowl.

THE MAKER: Tenimenti d’Alessandro

Tenimenti Luigi d'Alessandro is the pioneering winery for Rhône-style wines in Cortona. The winery began experimenting with 10 acres of Syrah in the late 1980s and discovered that Cortona was ideally suited to Rhône varietals. They are recognised as the benchmark producer of Syrah and Viognier in Italy.
Located in Manzano, in the municipality of Cortona in southeastern Tuscany, the vineyards are planted to Northern Rhône clones of Viognier and Syrah and are farmed organically.
