The Scrio 2009 is 100% Syrah from the famous Italian Tuscan region. This wine produced by the Le Macchiole Estates is characterized by intense blackberry notes combined with smokey tones. On the palate it appears to be pretty full-bodied and well-structured matching with firm tannins. Some special underlying mineral notes emerge while tasting.
Parker : 90 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2009 Scrio (Syrah) is a dark, brooding wine layered with the essence of smoke, tar, graphite, plums and blackberries. Firm tannins convey serious structure in this full-bodied, intense wine. Today the oak is a bit dominant, although the 2009 has an attractive sense of underlying minerality. At the same time, the 2009 lacks any sense of varietal expression and is also quite distant from previous years in terms of its personality. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.
