Info

The Syrah comes from the clay-rich and stony vineyard with limestone in the subsoil in Riparbella. The vineyard is described as extreme by Elena Celli and Luca d'Attoma. It faces the Tyrrhenian Sea. The vines were planted 17 years ago. Manual harvest and first selection in the vineyard. Gentle destemming and second selection on the sorting table follow in the winery. The berries should reach the fermentation in the barrel without any injuries. Fermentation then takes place in conical oak barrels with 1000l capacity as well as small barriques of French origin. Around 30% of the harvest is fermented with whole grapes. In the barriques, manual pigeage takes place during fermentation. In the conical barrels, the must is pumped over the rising marc cake. Fermentation is followed by a maceration period of 30 days. After racking, the wines are blended and now returned to the same barrels for ageing. 80% first barrels and 20% second barrels. Maturation in barrel continues for 22 months. No further racking or filtration takes place until bottling.

Nose

The 2019 Suisassi Syrah from Duemani always manages to impress. With the great expectation of elegance in the wines produced by Luca d'Attoma, even connoisseurs of leaner wine types can be convinced with this. The Syrah is dominated by the darkest fruit. Blackberry, sweet cherry, mulberry as well as fig and cassis are loudly represented in the glass. Plums and pickled morello cherries also join this round of aromas. The fruit is rounded off with a little cinnamon, black pepper and hints of juniper. Rosemary, oregano and liquorice are added from the spice cabinet. Delicate notes of coconut give it a varied spiciness along the way. Liquorice and melted dark chocolate come in handy. After a few minutes, ethereal components reminiscent of mint and eucalyptus unfold in the glass.

Palate

Luca d'Attomo's world opens up right from the start. Despite all the density and concentration, he always manages to tame these powerhouses in wine form. The intense fruit is wrapped in an elegant, silky mantle that also brings cooling attributes. The tannin is wonderfully melting and buttery. The acidity on the palate is gripping. This provides a good freshness and a lot of life on the palate. The fruit seems serious, expansive and generous in the finish. The ethereal aromas are not neglected either. Eucalyptus and liquorice dominate the reverberation for minutes. A discreet spiciness appears at this young stage, but it is very well buffered.
