Description

D’Alessandro Borgo Syrah 2012

D’Alessandro Borgo Syrah 2012 – Il Gobbo Nero is our single-variety syrah, produced from the selection of the best syrah grapes of our vineyard. The vinification takes place in concrete tanks, then the wine rests for 12 months in French oak barriques. The wine spends 12 months of refinement in the bottle, before being sold. The wine has a deep ruby red colour, and at the nose it pleasantly surprises with notes of pepper, cinnamon, berries such as currant, blueberry and a cherry base. Compelling in the mouth, with fine and flaunt tannins, structured body, well balanced, with a fresh note calibrated. The finish is inviting and complex.

The vocation for Syrah and Viognier

Starting from the 80s, the area has been subject to intense experimentation in order to determine the very best varieties for its soils and climate conditions.
Above all, Syrah performed the best and seemed to be the most suitable grape variety. The great vine of the Rhone has found the way to express itself with its own strong identity, well adapting to a warm, bright and dry environments, as well as sedimentary deposits of pliocene origin: clays, sands, silts.

The very first result came in 1992 with the first vintage of the “Bosco”, a pure Syrah that soon became the winery’s most iconic label and one of the most appreciated Syrah in Italy and in the world. Viognier was the other discovery that, since 1991 with the cru “Fontarca”, holds an important share of the vineyards.
