    This breathtaking, superbly structured Syrah is dark ruby in color, with intense aromas of pepper, red meat and berry. Full-bodied, with masses of velvety tannins and a long, long finish of chocolate, berry and game. Why buy Guigal anymore? 1,750 cases made.

    Over the hill. Dry and bitter.
    Author: Tbone200

The rolling hills of Tuscany are home to ancient vines that grew wild long before modern times. Sangiovese is the variety of the region's best-known wines, Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti. In recent years, “Super Tuscans"—blends including non-native Bordeaux varieties—have gained in popularity and acclaim. The region's Mediterranean climate, with its warmer average temperatures, provides ideal conditions for the development of rich, structured, and age-worthy wines.
