Syrah is the only international infusion in our production, usually close to tradition. We have chosen Syrah grapes for our sandy vineyard, facing South-East and North West, on our steep slopes where soil is rich in loam and in texture. So we can harvest deeply coloured and fruity grapes, that clearly taste their varietal spicy note. Syrah grapes are vinified in stainless steel to combine a full body taste with a young and intense aroma. Like most of our wines, Scopaiolo is made as a varietal wine, in order to bring out the terroir.
