Petra Belvento Sireno 2017
Ripe, juicy strawberries and blackcurrants with a hint of balsamic, generous structure through out and a sprinkling of Italian herbs in the background. This is a brilliant red meat wine, almost acting like seasoning.
Sireno is a blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese from vineyards located in the seaside region of Maremma, Tuscany. Here the sandy soils and maritime identity have produced flavoursome and expressive wines from french varieties for sometime now, and this is no exception.
The Petra team get props for having a focus on minimising the environmental impact of their whole production process. They farm organically and power the winery using solar energy.
