Cuculaia Syrah - Cortona DOC.

Cuculaia is meant to be an oenological experiment, a trip towards extreme frontier of quality, looking for the limit which Syrah can attain in Cortona’s terroir.

It is made only in the great years, exclusively from Syrah grapes cultivated in our farm, with very low yields per hectare (maximum 4 tons from 5.000 vines), strictly selected throughout the year (especially before and during the harvest) expressly for this wine, all over our best vineyards, above all from our favourite one, named Cuculaia, hand picked (usually from mid-September) into small 15 kg. boxes with ventilation holes.

The grapes are very gently crushed and destemmed (just opening but not crushing the berries), then pumped in temperature–controlled stainless steel tanks, where the slow alcoholic fermentation is carried out for about 15 days; the following maceration of the skins lasts about four more weeks.


On the palate it is powerful, voluminous and deep. At the same time with an admirable structure, with an excellent tannic texture and very fine minerality. Maintains the palate with vigor and class, developing lush aromas of jam, dried fruit and copious spices. It certainly is excellent, both in its individual parts and in general harmony and balance.

Taken as a whole, it is an incredible manifestation of Tuscan Syrah in its most complex declination, that is, aged for a long time in wood.

Only the best barrels will be part of the most precious cuvée.
