Violato Syrah 2016

16.99 13.59

  • 20% off Italy


“Violato” is inspired by the deep purple colour of the Syrah as its crushed. The nose is equally colourful, a noisy bouquet of red berry fruits, blackberries and plums, along with hints of figs, black pepper and violets. The palate is beautifully lush and silky, full-bodied, almost creamy, with intense black fruits and a fine tannic structure to support a long, dry finish that reveals more herbal and spice notes.

Enjoy this stunning Syrah along side your favourite venison dish.

Producer: Fattoria Il Muro

Il Muro estate has been owned by the Pancaro family for more than two centuries. In the 17th century, poet Francesco Redi, whose villa can be admired on the side of Poggio Mendico, celebrated the vineyards and the wines of this area, describing them as blood-red, gold-red, sparkling, bright and spicy in his well-known poem “Bacchus in Tuscany”. Situated in the very heart of Tuscany, a few miles from the medieval city of Arezzo, the estate is actually a full working farm, extending over 65 hectares of woods, vineyards and olive groves. Fruit and vegetables are grown, and hens and pigs are raised for eggs and salumi. But the land is made for wine; 'galestro' soils, a mix of loose marl and limestone, and a temperate climate regulated by the nearby Alpe di Poti mountain range, provide the perfect terroir for traditional Tuscan grapes Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Malvasia and Vermentino.
