compelling aromas of plum, cola and cracked black pepper immediately asserting themselves. The addition of a small amount of Viognier co-fermented with Syrah elevates the aromatics towards the spicy side.
Concentrated and intense, this jammy, fruit-driven wine is held within a framework of moderately tight tannins. As with our other red wines, VINTO becomes more full-bodied once it has been exposed to air in a decanter or in the glass. The spicy mid-palate fruit shifts to higher tones and suggests red raspberries, cherries and figs. An intriguing stony minerality also emerges, carried by the wine’s bright acid through to the long finish. Between its immediate approachability and its firm grip of enveloping tannins, we’re confident that our VINTO Syrah blend will continue its winning streak with Fortunati fans!
