From Rocca delle Macie vineyards in the Maremma coastal district of southeastern Tuscany.
Carefully selected ripe grapes are harvested by hand. The two grape varieties are separately fermented at carefully controlled temperatures to preserve color and freshness of fruit flavors and aromatics. 15% of the Sangiovese is aged in French oak barriques for a period of six months. The two varieties are then blended and bottled for release.
Color: Brilliant ruby red
Bouquet: Intense red fruit aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry and raspberry
Taste: A succulent, supple well-structured palate with a silky smooth finish
Very versatile; will complement red meats, hearty, robust vegetarian dishes, pastas and risottos with flavorful sauces. May also be served on its own, by the glass, as a reception wine. - Winery
This is a great value wine. In fact, the 2013 Sasyr offers extra value thanks to its pretty vintage characteristics. This no-fuss 60/40 blend of Sangiovese and Syrah is fruity and fresh with loud primary aromas and snappy freshness. Pair this food-friendly wine with ravioli in wild mushroom sauce. - Robert Parker 88 Points
