This debut vintage is a classic expression of Syrah. With fruit drawn 34-year-old vines, fermented both in terracotta amphorae acquired the Manetti family of Fontodi fame and open-top tonneaux, then aged ten months in French barrique, the 2015 Le Pupille shows all the typical notes of Syrah and a nice roundness of tannin. It is a very tight wine that is layered and beautiful, carefully crafted to avoid reduction. This new line should be a winner for years to come. Congratulations.
