le Macchiole Scrio Toscana 2008

le Macchiole Scrio Toscana 750ml 2008       
Sku: 1754760*

Scrio is the Prodigal son, the one that alway causes worry and concern, the one who makes you work hard. With him you must always be attentive, you can never relax control, but then he can also give great satisfaction. This is the wine that most reminds me of Eugenio.

The 2008 Scrio (Syrah) wraps around the palate with layers of rich, dark fruit. This is a decidedly cool Scrio that stands apart from some of the more bombastic wines of recent vintages. Dark cherries, plums, espresso and sweet herbs are some of the aromas and flavors that emerge over time, but it is the integration of the French oak this year that truly elevates the wine to another level. Not surprisingly, in 2008 Scrio was aged exclusively in 1 year-old barrels, with no new oak, which makes a huge difference. This is understated and flat-out great. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.

Bright, dark red. Vibrant, complex nose delivers blackberry, brown sugar, violet, smoky cardamom and charred oak aromas. Superconcentrated, sappy and rich, offering a rare blend of power and delicacy, with no single element dominating on the palate. The flavors of creamy red and black fruits, pepper and spices are compellingly sweet and mouthcoating. Finishes with very fine tannins, great persistence and an intriguing note of Oriental spices. An outstanding Scrio. -- Ian D’Agata 94+ Points
