Silver Syrah Trentotto File 2010
Alc: 13% | Type/Varietal: - Red, Red Blend
91% Syrah, 4% Mourvedre, 3% Grenache, 2% Viognier. Beautiful aromas of roasted pork in a blackberry-licorice sauce pick up a bit of grape before hitting the palate with black pepper, blueberries and solid tannins. It’s fun but serious. This wine is built to last for the next 15-20 years.
