Winemaker Notes

Intense garnet color with a complete balsamic, spiced and fruity nose. Strong tannic structure with an ample palate. Hints of chocolate and coffee on the finish. Intense and persistent. Recommended with grilled meat and game. Excellent with aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Shows fine depth, from the floral and berry aromas to the sweet cherry and raspberry flavors. Detailed and elegant, with accents of mineral, tobacco and underbrush adding complexity. Features a terrific finish, with a fruit and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2025. 670 cases made.
JS 93
James Suckling
Intense aromas of mushrooms, plums, meat and spices follow though to a full body, with velvety tannins and a coffee, meat and ripe fruit aftertaste. Made from organically grown grapes. Very enjoyable now but will improve years ahead.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione needs a lot of air for the bouquet to find its focus. Silky tannins frame sweet red berries, flowers and licorice in this mid-weight Brunello. The purity of the fruit is striking, but the aromatics aren't perfectly clean. This is an underachieving effort from one of Montalcino's top properties. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025

Salicutti
Owner Francesco Leanza is a firm believer in total-quality processes and natural farming. This is reflected in his respect for the biological cycles of his plants, which he is convinced leads to vines that produce not only better-tasting fruit and wines, but also benefit the environment and the consumer.

The vineyards and olive groves of Salicutti are set in a large natural amphitheater with a spectacular view of the cultivated fields of Tuscany’s Orcia Valley and the nearby woods of Mount Amiata. In the middle of this charming natural setting lies the Salicutti estate, which prides itself on the production of high-quality wines through the use of traditional, environmentally respectful agricultural methods. Winemaking Process

Leanza’s environmentally sound approach to viticulture shuns chemical intervention in favor of a return to the basics: identifying the optimal terroir, sun exposure and vineyard altitude to produce exceptional wines. Leanza fertilizes his vines and treats vineyard pests using only noninvasive measures, such as under-plowing and natural fertilizers.

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.
