Scrio Rosso 2009 Le Macchiole
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
The 2009 Scrio (Syrah) is a dark, brooding wine layered with the essence of smoke, tar, graphite, plums and blackberries. Firm tannins convey serious structure in this full-bodied, intense wine. Today the oak is a bit dominant, although the 2009 has an attractive sense of underlying minerality. At the same time, the 2009 lacks any sense of varietal expression and is also quite distant from previous years in terms of its personality.
Marked by vanilla and toast notes from the new oak, this red is slick and modern. The black currant and blackberry flavors are fresh and the wine ends with a Bourbonlike aftertaste. Ambitious, and has potential. Syrah.
