Winemaker Notes

The 2010 Perbruno opens up to dark purple color in the glass. The characteristic tannins of the Syrah are smooth, rich and velvety, Taste of little ripe black fruits as mulberry, cherry and blueberry. On the finish, the wine enjoys good acid structure with hints of spices and pepper.

Wine Enthusiast
The quality of fruit in this expression of Syrah is dark, plush, rich and opulent. The bouquet offers notes of black cherry, prune, smoked bacon, tobacco, white pepper and clove. The tannins are luscious and firm, and there’s plenty of ripe fruit to keep the wine firmly fixed to the palate for many minutes.

I Giusti and Zanza, Tuscany, Italy
At the time when Paolo Edoardo Giusti and Fabio Zanza first began in 1995, the area of Scopicci, known for its rolling hills, was witnessing a rebirth of new ideas and inovating thinking that would transform the way wine was being produced there. The 9.5-hectare estate rests on the hills of Scopicci and is run by one of Italy's premier agricologists, Stefano Chioccioli. A rarity in Italy, Stefano specializes both in the vineyard and the winery.

The philosophy at I Giusti & Zanza is the essential embodiment of research into quality, always in pursuit of the highest quality that is possible from the estate. From a techhnical view, the guided efforts of Dr. Stefano Chiccioli have completely revised the winery with improvements in the cellar as well as in the vineyard.

One of the most iconic Italian regions for wine, scenery, and history, Tuscany is the world’s most important outpost for the Sangiovese grape. Ranging in style from fruity and simple to complex and age-worthy, as well as in price from budget-friendly to ultra-premium, Sangiovese makes up a significant percentage of plantings here, with the white Trebbiano Toscano trailing far behind.

Within Tuscany, many esteemed wines have their own respective sub-zones, including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The climate is Mediterranean and the topography consists mostly of picturesque rolling hills, perfect for Sangiovese as it ripens most efficiently on slopes with maximum exposure to sunlight.

Sangiovese at its simplest produces straightforward pizza-friendly wines with bright red fruit and not much more, but at its best it shows remarkable complexity. Top-quality Sangiovese-based wines can be expressive of a range of characteristics such as sour cherry, balsamic, dried herbs, leather, fresh earth, dried flowers, anise and tobacco. Brunello in particular is sensitive to vintage variation, performing best in years that are not too hot and not too cold. Chianti is associated with tangy and food-friendly dry wines at various price points. A more recent phenomenon as of the 1970s is the “Super Tuscan”—a wine made from international grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with or without Sangiovese. These are common in Tuscany’s coastal regions like Bolgheri, Val di Cornia, the island of Elba and more inland, in Carmignano.

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable aromatics, a savory palate, and an elegant texture, Syrah is capable of producing fascinatingly complex and long-lived wines with a stunning purple hue. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah’s best examples are found in Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. It is also an important component of the GSM blends of the Southern Rhône and beyond, alongside Grenache and Mourvèdre. Both varietal Syrah and GSM blends are common in Australia and California and are gaining popularity in Washington State. In Australia, Syrah is known by the synonym Shiraz, which tends to indicate a bolder, fruit-driven style of wine, and is occasionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon for added depth and structure.

In the Glass

At its best, Syrah shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper, smoke, and even bacon fat. Many examples from California aim to recreate this savory style, while others focus more on concentrated fruit flavors. In Australia, under the name Shiraz, it shines as that country’s unofficial signature red grape, producing deep, dark, intense, and often jammy reds.

Perfect Pairings

Cool-climate Syrah, with its peppery spices, is a natural match with flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb dishes, where the spice is more about flavor than heat. With Australian Shiraz, grown in warmer regions, heavy meat dishes with abundant protein and fat are a necessity to match the intensity of the wine.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” this synonym for Syrah has been adopted by winemakers throughout the world. If the label says “Shiraz,” you can typically expect a plush, fruity, and potent wine made in the Australian style. New World "Syrah" will generally more closely resemble the French style.
