Fontodi Syrah Case Via Colli della Toscana blind review by (PB)
(NW) served this up to me and made me look like a rank amateur in wine tasting. It has a red hue with a bouquet of berries, dill cinnamon and candied berries.
Palate--somehwat lighter in body with cherries, a break out of subtle licorice rear palate,mature tannins and some milky fudge. With more time is has a raisiny quality to it leading me to think it might be a ripasso.
This wine is known as the best Syrah in Italy and will run you a hefty $50-$70. This was quite an experience and an education so raise a glass!
