Isole e Olena
"The 2009 Syrah was a little closed when I tasted it, but it did open slowly in the glass. As it evolves, it shows dark fruit with delicate layers of smoked bacon, crushed white pepper and dark blackberry fruit. Paolo De Marchi does full cluster fermentations and stem inclusions. In the mouth, the Syrah is not as dense or as meaty as you might expect. Instead, it offers a direct and streamlined approach with lingering blackberry flavors on the close. I would recommend giving this wine a little extra time of bottle aging. -ML"
