The description

The Firriato family opens its arms wide to welcome a new version of a wine that has been highly esteemed for some time.  Altavilla Syrah will not disappoint the palates of the most curious, those who place their trust in a new challenge in keeping with Firriato’s style. Thanks to the singular characteristics of the windy terroir, this variety of unknown origin finds fertile ground on the Borgo Guarini estate, allowing it to grow and amaze with its pleasant persuasiveness. The ruby-red colour evokes age-old memories of devotion to a land that repays the blood, sweat and tears needed to make it great with what could easily be mistaken for liquid gold.  Wine created for those in search of new sensations.

 

A variety of infinite taste, Syrah is enhanced by all of its components in a harmonious strive for perfection. Its unknown provenance entices faithful admirers to tell various stories of its roots in a bid to lay claim to its origins.  Iran is the place favoured by enthusiasts of oriental charm, but Sicily is where the vine performs best, indicating that Syracuse could well be its native land.  The red grapes from which the wine is produced are amongst the best of the prestigious international varieties and it draws fame and authority from its name, bestowed in admiring respect for one of the most influential Norman families in the historic affairs between Sicily and southern Italy, the Altavilla family.

 

Colour: deep ruby red.

Nose: announces its presence with hints of ripe fruit marked with light nuances of vanilla and spices.

Palate: good structure, enhanced with elegant, enveloping tannins and an excellent and delicate persistence.

Characteristics: an expression par excellence of this international variety that has found its ideal habitat in the Sicilian terroir;  a winning combination that has given rise to a wine with great personality and unquestionable charm.
