The Castagnino Syrah is a friendly drinker. An inoffensive, medium bodied red wine that delivers on a fresh abundance of fruity flair without being overwhelming or sweet. Looking for a casual sipper or a "drink me" while nestled up on the couch overdosing on netflix? This is your bottle.
The nose of this Syrah is soft, delicate, and supple. The extra care and percision in foraging these grapes can be felt throughout the entire experience of this wine. The grapes are handled with the utmost of care during the crushing and destemming process, to say crush sounds so harsh, these grapes are opened to their fullest potential by a gentle hand then turned to stainless steal rather than wood to ferment. A process that challenges the Syrah grape and shapes its subtle flavors.
You won’t be shocked or riveted by this wine. You won’t jump from your seat and question the wonders of the world, this Syrah is casual, pretty, soft, and easy. It's date night with a best friend. You’ll pull a touch of floral and colorful sensations with soft, round tannins, an expected and welcomed finish with no bite or hint of destruction. A mild tinge of sage. The colors are a pristine combination of pomegranate red and deep plums plucked from their trees. The legs are long and sticky and wrap the glass with no remorse.
Sip easy. Sip Pretty.
