Syrah "Firriato Branciforti Bordonaro"
Of all the international vine varieties, Syrah is the most diffuse in Sicily. These grapes are cultivated by Firriato on the western coast of Sicily. This variety has found an ideal habitat on the island for conveying all its distinguishing characteristics. The hillside climate and the temperature difference between day and night contribute towards highlighting Syrah’s features.These are revealed through elegant enveloping tannins that go together perfectly with hints of ripened fruit and undertones of vanilla. The deep ruby red appearance of Syrah pre-empts the characteristic spicy notes of the vine’s bouquet, and distinguishes its warm, Mediterranean spirit.
