TN : Donna Maria Syrah 2009, Vina Falernia, Limari Valley, Chile

All of the grapes were hand-harvested into smal bins during the first two weeks of April 2009. The grapes were crushed and then underwent a cold maceration. The must was then fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged partially in French oak barrels for six months. This wine was bottled unfiltered. The winemaker was Giorgio Flessati.

This wine is a tribute to Maria Gramola Olivier who left northern Italy for Chile in 1951 with her husband and seven children.

This wine was imported by WineWorld AB.
