LIVIA, Merumalia's Syrah, with an intense red color with violet reflections, is a warm and enveloping wine. On the nose a bouquet of blueberry, blackberry and plum, with notes of black pepper. Aged in barrique, it gives the palate an elegant structure and roundness after the initial tannic astringency. It goes well with strong flavors. Syraz vineyards are grown on the north side of volcanic, rocky soil (mineral rich) of Castelli Romani, respecting the nature and the environment. The production has an upper limit of 8 tons per hectar (much less then permitted). The fermentation initiated with selected yeast, is thermally controlled in inox containers. The wine is aged in French oak before being blended.
