Ascheri Montalupa Syrah
Vino da Tavola
A terraced limestone vineyard, with some sandy topsoils, absolutely classic for Syrah. The wine has yet to take off and happily Matteo is sticking to his vision of a restrained, structured wine and the Syrah is becoming deeper and more structured each year. This is a particular wine that may be the most unaffected of its type in Piemonte.
The grapes are harvested by hand in the first two weeks of October, the fermentation lasts about 20 days. Ageing is for 30 months in Slovenian oak. About 6700 bottles are made each year.
Usually we have to wait for Matteo's Syrah to come 'round, this year it is all generous fruit, big, open and soft and were it not for a vein of Piemontese restraint this could be mistaken for a top new world Syrah (and I mean that as a compliment). Best to 2020. 13.5%
