Full body with round and velvety tannins and intense raw meat and dark fruits on the palate that turn to black pepper. Hints of new wood too. A big and rich Syrah. This needs at least three to four years of bottle age still.

The 2008 Cortona Syrah Il Bosco comes across as quite focused and primary in this vintage with layers of black fruit lurking beneath a wall of imposing tannin. The 2008 is a cool inward Il Bosco that needs a few years in bottle before it begins to show the full breadth of its potential. For now the wine's sheer depth and textural richness makes me think the future is bright. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023+.
