About the wine

The estate was purchased by Count Manfredo and his English wife Sarah, Countess di San Bonifacio in 2002 and is located in Massa Marittima, a beautiful mediaeval town, home to their winery and spectacular wine resort. It is a site with excellent wine making potential and the most extraordinary panoramic views. The first vines were planted with the finest clones in 2004 and the vineyard now comprises 7 hectares, 100% organic.

TASTING NOTES

Intriguing Syrah that opens with interesting fruit sensations. The palate is dense and harmonious tannins and fruity in the compounds.

FOOD PAIRING

Ideal with lamb or game, as well as with grilled meats especially barbequed such as beef ribeye. Great paired with beef or chicken stew.

FRIARWOOD SAYS

Our Super Tuscan 100% Syrah It ages 12/14 months in new French oak barrels and then lays 6 months in bottle before being released into the market. A different Syrah, France meets the New World.
