Syrah | Grape variety

Syrah | Grape variety

Although the grape variety Syrah originated in the Rhone, many consumers are far more familiar with Shiraz from Australia (known there as Shiraz) or South Africa. Nowadays, the red wine grape also achieves considerable success in Sicily and Tuscany, whereby the Italian version is clearly drier in taste and is more reminiscent of Rhone Syrah than the Australian version.

The Italian Syrah should be seen separately, also because the methods of cultivation in Italy are usually quite different. The result is a very European Syrah with the typical notes of currants, the strong, dark red color and the relatively high tannin content. The Syrah vine prefers sunny regions and, in the wake of climate change, is also gaining in importance in Italy (especially in Tuscany). There, the grape variety produces full-bodied and powerful red wines with a distinct fruitiness, which also captivate with their spicy-peppery bouquet. Some wineries in Tuscany nowadays also increasingly use the Syrah, even if the plantings are still projects for the future. Accordingly, wine drinkers are more avant-garde, because in the mainstream Italy's Syrah is far from having arrived. - Gerardo

´Benuara´ · Syrah-Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC 2021, Cusumano, Sizilien
Benuara · Syrah-Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC 2021

Cusumano, Sicily

Benuara, a blend of Nero d'Avola and Syrah shows a brilliant dark red color. The aroma is intense and complex, reminiscent of ripe wild berries and cherry liqueur. The palate is velvety, full of berry fruit and closes with balsamic hints. - Gerardo [TS12/22]

"The Nero d'Avola and its partial maturation in stainless steel tanks give the Benuara its freshness. It gets its strength from the Syrah, which has been matured in large wooden barrels. In the fragrance, fruit aromas of dark berries and sea buckthorn characterize this wine. The intense fruit and the well-integrated tannin impress on the tongue. Very soft and yet rich. Goes well with dishes with red meat, cheese." - John Platter

"Very dark, intense red with purple highlights. On the nose aromas of plum and blueberry, accompanied by notes of licorice and cocoa. In the mouth soft but with a nice note of acidity, marked tannins and a slightly spicy finish." - Falstaff

"A juicy berry nose on this wine offers fun, funky aromas of hot rocks and soy sauce to balance. The palate brings more cherries, strawberries and blackberries, but with a tannic-acidic punch that ensures the fruit maintains integrity." - Wine Enthusiast

´Calto´ · Rosso Veronese IGT 2018, Marion, Venetien
Calto · Rosso Veronese IGT 2018

Marion, Veneto

Going with the flow has never been the intention of the Campedelli family, which is behind the Marion winery. This is evident not only in the unusual for the Veneto grape varieties such as Teroldego, but also in the fantasy cuvee 'Calto'. This prestigious wine is nothing other than a very personal interpretation of Amarone, which, however, cannot be marketed as such due to legal regulations. The proportion of Teroldego provides additional fire, accordingly, this wine is intense:

In the glass of very dark, ruby color with only slightly brightening edges. In the aroma of red berries, licorice and some tobacco. The palate is velvety, well structured and soft tannins. The finish is complex and persistent. - Gerardo [TS04/19]

"The 2018 Calto pulls the taster close to the glass to take in its dark blend of cloves, dried black cherries and cocoa. This is pure elegance on the palate, silky and refined, with a pretty inner sweetness and fresh acidity that guides its ripe wild berry fruits. Sweet tannins frame the experience without getting in the way, as the 2018 finishes with medium length and a resonance of orange-kissed dark chocolate. The pleasure dial is turned all the way up and yet balance is expertly maintainted. The Calto is a blend of Oseleta, Croatina, Syrah, Cabernet and Merlot that goes through 20 days of appassimento." - Antonio Galloni (Vinous)
