Podere Casinas‘s syrah is the result of the careful manual selection of the best grapes grown in our vineyards. Following the wine-making process, using only indigenous yeasts, the wine is refined for 12 months in small french oak casks. It is a ruby-red wine with violet-like aromas, a perfume typical of the grape variety in which suggestions of mature red-berry jam are also in evidence. These characteristics, together with a hint of spices, result in a wine which is capable of evolving still further if conserved in the correct environment. This wine, of which very few bottles are produced, represents our interpretation of a noble wine of french origin which has found, on the sunny slopes of the Maremma, its ideal habitat.
