Description

2012 Antinori Bramasole Syrah Magnum.

This Syrah is made in Cortona in the south of Tuscany. The Syrah grape produces great wines here, used only in blends for years, but with the arrival of the top wine Bramasole (sun worshiper in Italian), Antinori shows that the Syrah has a lot of potential. Rich and ripe fruit, tobacco, licorice and peppery in the aftertaste.

Climate:

The 2012 vintage was characterized by a dry, cold Winter. The rains of the Spring season assisted in a regular growth and development of the vine before the arrival of a hot Summer. End of August rains were useful in aiding the plant to complete the ripening of its grapes in a regular fashion, and the crop, in fact, showed a good quality level and balance in the grapes which were produced. The picking of the Syrah  intended for use in Bramasole were picked at the end of the month of September.
