RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Simply fascinating. Almost no stereotypical Italian traits. In a blind tasting I would guess a Barbera from California. Big fruit bomb without the oak-y cream or vanilla. Like pure fruit. Sour fruity acidity to the core. Like melted warheads candy. I have never had anything like this before. This is a must try. not much aging potential due to lack of tannin so drink up. Like Barberas, this goes terrific with pizza.
This is a slightly above average wine, not a great one but nice. Light and fruity, it was very easy to drink. It went well with Rosemary marinated grilled beef and roasted potatoes. Worth trying at an Italian ristorante
Quite heavy but nice
Really nice with any Italian food.
I purchased three bottles of this wine... the first I had without food and it held up well as a nice entertaining bottle consumed with friends... But this wine is really better served with food, especially any risotto dish with mushrooms. Any scallopini of chicken or veal with this vintage is the oyster's ice skates and an extremely enjoyable pairing. Salute!
External Reviews for Vermentino Occhio a Vento Maremma Toscana I G T Italie
A nose of white flowers with herb and sea salt notes awaken the senses. Very fresh on the palate with citrus hints and almond notes.
Waxy lemon and pineapple aromas follow through to a full body, with good fruit and a delicious finish. Straightforward. Drink now.
Sasyr 2010 - 91 points, JamesSuckling.com/ A wine with sweet cherries and chocolate character. Full body, round and fresh. A little jammy but fresh.
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: 2009–2011.
Violet, jam and berry aromas lead to a medium body, with velvety tannins and a smoky berry aftertaste. Drink now.
This wine has forward aromas of tropical fruit and flowers, followed by flavors of tangy apple, papaya and lime. It's snappy on the tongue and clean. Very easygoing and solid.
/ Sasyr is a new product from Rocca delle Macie. It's a blend of Sangiovese and Syrah with great fruit intensity and spice carried forward by the wine's natural succulence and intensity. Its top selling point, however, is its easy drinkability and broad food-pairing potential.
