The Rhône is a top spot for Syrah, but Di Prima shows that Sicily excels with it too. This red is our latest discovery from this island, which is proving one of the most exciting places to make wine. Enjoy its rich black fruit and chocolatey spice.
"Awarded 90 points last vintage, we expect equal praise for this sumptuous 2017"
Leo Bassano Buyer for Italy
Tim Atkin MW says Sicily is “now one of the most exciting wine regions in Europe, blessed with a combination of abundant sunshine, varied terroirs, good indigenous grapes.” Plus, it has the investment to make the most of these advantages. This gorgeous Syrah comes from David di Prima, whose grandfather Gaspare planted the vines decades ago. The vineyards lie on high hills overlooking the Lago Arancio (Orange Tree Lake) reservoir. Originally a river, it was dammed in the 1950s. On rare occasions the water level drops to reveal the ruins of a Moorish temple. With deep colour, cherry, spice and chocolate character, this Syrah goes well with grilled red meats and full flavoured local dishes such as aubergine caponata or cucuzza squash bake.
