Dei Principi di Spadafora, Sicily

Syrah Alhambra, 2015



Grape Varieties: Syrah

Prince Francesco Spadafora operates outside of Palermo and keeps a relatively low profile. To my mind, he makes some of the best Syrah available today, not just in Sicily but in Italy at large.The wine places more focus on the fresh and fruity side of Syrah. Sweet maraschino cherry and ripe blackberry are followed by creamy vanilla and coffee bean. This is a medium-bodied expression with a long finish.
