Fontodi Syrah Case Via 2006

External Review:

Always one of the best Syrahs from Italy. Wonderful aromas of game, plums and berries, with a hint of crushed black pepper. Full-bodied and soft, with silky tannins and a sweet fruit, berry and raspberry aftertaste. I love drinking this. Drink now through 2006.

Teh 1999 Syrah Case Via (aged 12 months in barrique) appears to be the finest Syrah Fontodi has yet produced. It is a high-toned example with a cooler climate taste than French Syrah, but the complex notes of smoke, melted asphalt, blackberries, currants, leather, and charcoal are striking. Medium-bodied, with good underlying acidity, and a tight. restrained personality, this pure, long Syrah should continue to unfold over the next 7–10 years. Bravo!
