Description

HARVEST: Carried out in first days of September 2017. The grapes are selected in the vineyard and hand-picked into small crates. The destemming is delicate in order to obtain whole berries, and a further manual selection,takes place on sorting tables upon the arrival of the crop at the winery.

VINIFICATION: The fermentation is spontaneous without selected yeasts and takes place both in barrel and in small, conical oak tanks with a 1000 liter (265 gallon) capacity. Some 30% of the fruit sees whole-cluster fermentation. There is a manual punching down of the cap in the barrels and a pumping over of the cap in the oak fermenters where the temperature is also controlled.Macerated on skins for 20 days, then it is racked into the same barrelsand oak tanks used for the fermentation where it ages 20 months, 80% new oak and 20% used once previously.No fining and no filtration prior to bottling.

TASTING NOTES: In 2017 Suisassi Syrah expresses the maximum of the varietal with a finesse and an impressive quality. Spices, raspberry, dark berries, licorice and hints of violet, follow one another in an aromatic concert. Full body and silky tannins, all in perfect balance, in this year of warmth and concentration. It is a bomb. We recommend tasting it from 2022.
