Reviews for 2009 Fontodi Syrah

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, June 2012
The 2009 Syrah caresses the palate with generous blueberries blackberries and French oak. There isn't much varietal character or nuance here instead the wine impresses for its silky tannins and creamy expansive finish... The 2009 Syrah caresses the palate with generous blueberries blackberries and French oak. There isn't much varietal character or nuance here instead the wine impresses for its silky tannins and creamy expansive finish. Today the 2009 is all about fruit. With time in the glass some hints of varietal character come through but this remains a relatively soft fruit driven vintage for the Syrah. It will be interesting to see if the full range of varietal notes develops. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. --- Antonio Galloni
