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
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
/ 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.
/ Sangiovese and Syrah are blended for spicy tones and cherry nuances that would back ham, mushroom and mozzarella pizza.
/ Fine blend, combining Syrah's body and fruitiness, with Sangiovese's crispness and structure. It is smoothly textured, full bodied, crisp, and very long on the finish, tasting of cherry, blackberry, toast and violet.
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.
Waxy lemon and pineapple aromas follow through to a full body, with good fruit and a delicious finish. Straightforward. Drink now.
Smart Buy/ Displays very pretty plum, blackberry and floral aromas. Medium-to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh, clean, silky finish.
Sasyr 2006 - 88 Points & Top Value of 2008, Wine Spectator/ Offers blackberry, with hints of dried flowers and new wood. Medium-to full-bodied, with soft tannins and a fruity finish.
