Syrah Magnum 2020 – Stefano Amerighi
Stefano Amerighi’s Syrah is a celebrated and traditional expression of Syrah from the Cortona area, made even more substantial by the Magnum format. It is vinified in cement with a 24-month maturation in small barrels. Intense aromas of red fruit, tobacco and spices emerge from a complex, full-bodied and elegant texture, of great harmony and balance.

Stefano Amerighi’s Syrah Magnum is a complex and deep red, as well as the absolute benchmark when it comes to Syrah in Italy. That of Stefano Amerighi, winemaker in Cortona, is a name for which introductions are even superfluous, although this acquired status is the result of constant work aimed at continuous improvement. Add to this the fact that Cortona, by virtue of its pedoclimatic conditions, is probably the area where Syrah is able to fully realize its expressive potential to the extent that it can be juxtaposed with the masters of the Rhone, and you’ve got it. In the vineyard, of course, the care is meticulous, and the dictates of sustainable agriculture are followed so as to preserve the vitality of soil and fruit, and in the winery the philosophy is the same. Vigilant guardianship, without any prevarication. The results speak for themselves, and each year they amaze more in definition and three-dimensionality. Among the greats.
