Smeriglio Syrah 2014
A Syrah from Tuscany? Yes! And a good one.
Baracchi - Smeriglio Syrah 2014 (90 tsomw points)
In the glass a deep ruby red color.
On the nose aromas of wild berries, cinnamon, spices, pepper, vanilla and coffee.
On the palate smooth and soft with enough power. Top Syrah from Tuscany.
Grapes: 100% Syrah
Yearly production: 10.000 bottles
Alcohol: 14,50% Vol.
The maceration took place in still tank over a period of 25 days, during which time alcoholic fermentation was also completed, at controlled temperature, never exceeding 24 °C. The wine is then transferred to new French oak barriques (Troncais, Nevers and Alliers medium toasting) where malolactic fermentation is completed. The wine is then racked, blended and then returned to the barrels for about 12 months aging, followed by aging in bottles for about 6 months before release.
