Rocca Delle Mace Sasyr 2007

Member Review by BGShawn:

This is a decent representation of Super Tuscan that can fill any gaps in a wine list; AND bring the "Super Tuscan" moniker to the mix. The Sasyr has an elegant and light flavor, medium bodied and a little short on its expression. This wine bangs in your mouth on the initial expression however, leaves you looking for more as it falls off rather abruptly. Not sure if time will accentuate this but could make it a little more interesting.

This friendly blend of Sangiovese and Syrah offers density, chewiness and succulence. Aromas include blueberry, black currant, peppercorn and anise seed and the wine offers bright, thick flavors. Pair it with meat or pasta.

The 2007 Sasyr (60% Sangiovese and 40% Syrah) is another bold, fruit-driven red. Sheer concentration dominates over complexity and subtlety in this big, powerful wine. Anticipated maturity: 2009andndash;2011.

Offers blackberry, with hints of dried flowers and new wood. Medium- to full-bodied, with soft tannins and a fruity finish. Drink now.

Violet, jam and berry aromas lead to a medium body, with velvety tannins and a smoky berry aftertaste. Drink now.

Displays very pretty plum, blackberry and floral aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh, clean, silky finish. Best after 2008.
