Cusumano Vini Syrah 2009
Deep red color with spicy berry aromas. Medium- to full-bodied wine displaying flavors of berries, cassis and spice. Rich, warm, and full bodied with a velvet texture that delivers black raspberries and spicy blackberries. Double yum, especially at this price. Matches with rich pasta dishes (tomato-based or spicy), grilled meats, roasted game, hearty soups, or stews.
100% Syrah. Established in 1963, the Cusumano's family company started as a small producer and grape provider to great and traditional wine houses of Sicily. Their first wines began to be produced in 2000, after almost 40 years of studies and experimentation, already under the management of young brothers Alberto and Diego Cusumano. Although their short history as wine producers, the Cusumanos intimately know the virtues of their vineyards, which are distributed by several of the main vine regions of Sicily and deployed with different trunks, according to the vocation of each region. So, they were and are capable of producing rare-quality wines for tempting prices, turning in a few years from anonymity to a condition of Sicilian viticulture stars.
