Notes from the Winemaker:
Pure Syrah, that grows in the heart of our estate,a "goblet" vineyard where the quantity of stones becomes massive. The expression of the grape is stunning: plums, blueberry, black spicy, licorice, smoked notes, hide. Comes forward misteriously and gives a pyrotechnic finish.

Ratings & Reviews

97 Points - James Suckling:
"This is arguably the best syrah made in Italy this year with incredible depth and complexity delivering all the dried meat and berry character with wet earth and dried mushroom undertones. It is full yet so energetic and balanced. Fantastic. Drink or hold. Made from biodynamic grapes and Demeter certified." (Aug 2017)

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2013 Syrah Suisassi is faithful to the grape and shows abundant notes of blackberry, cured meat, exotic spice and grilled herb. Luca D'Attoma has been experimenting with increased stem inclusion. In the 2012 vintage, 30% of the mass saw stem inclusion, but that figure rises to 100% with the 2016 vintage. This wine was not produced in 2014. This Syrah is an extremely well integrated and smoothly textured. The oak still needs time to integrate, but past tasting experiences with Suisassi give excellent promise for its age-worthiness. Luca believes stem inclusion provokes a slightly reduced effect when the wine is young. For this reason, you should wait before popping the cork." - Monica Larner (Jan 2017)
