2011 Syrah, Maroccoli Planeta*
Sicily / Italy
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Will pair very well with grilled red meats, particularly Italy game with rich sauces and matured cheeses. Sicilian cookery: Rigatoni with a red tuna and mint, risotto, stuffed leg of lamb, mixed grilled kebab, marsala cutlets. Sicilian cheese: Pecorino Siciliano.
Ruby red to deep purple tones. Intense and persistent on the nose with notes of black fruits like cherryand blackberry chocolate, leather and spices integrated with creamy vanilla and nut coming from the wood. On the palate the wine is full bodied, velvety and warm. Ending with soft and sweet tannins and with a long sumptuous finish.
