Fattoria di Magliano Perenzo

Made “for Enzo,” the proprietor’s father, Perenzo bears his name and favorite color on the label.  The dark fruit is accented by peppery notes.  Baking spices and licorice complement these aromas to create a harmonious bouquet.  An opulent wine with a long polished finish marked by fine, elegant tannins.  Aged in new, medium-toasted French oak barrels for 14-18 months and cellared for 6 months in bottle prior to release.

“This shows tension and structure with blackcurrant, dried-mushroom and hints of coffee-bean aromas. Full body with chewy tannins but polished and succulent. Needs a year or two to soften but illustrates excellent potential: Try in 2016.”

This round, structured Syrah opens with aromas of ripe black fruit, tilled soil and ground black pepper. The palate shows mature blackberry and raspberry together with notes of spice and clove. Velvety tannins provide the framework.

Currant and blueberry character with chocolate and almond undertones. Full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Better in 2015.

…dark, powerful wine. Blackberry jam, herbs, spice and menthol abound. There is plenty of richness in the glass, but not as much varietal nuance or complexity as I had hoped.

Wild, balsamic aromas of strawberry, musky coffee and aromatic herbs. Supple on entry, then less sweet in the middle, with strong vinosity and fine tannins nicely supporting the ripe fruit. Bright acidity provides noteworthy lift to the persistent finish.

Bright and fruity with lemon, strawberry and milk chocolate character. Full body, yet balanced and delicious. Chocolate orange aftertaste. Drink now or hold.

The 2010 Perenzo (Syrah) wraps around the palate with expressive dark blue/black fruit, violets, licorice and menthol. A juicy, expressive wine, the 2010 is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the flavors remain vibrant. A core of intense minerality gives the 2010 much of its precision. Hints of white flowers and crushed rocks also add and element of brightness that is highly appealing. Regional expression dominates over more typical varietal notes in this beautiful version of Perenzo.

Dense and fleshy, this effusive, fruity red sports black cherry, black currant, leather, tobacco and mineral flavors. Firm and intense, with a long, cherry- and spice-filled finish. Best from 2015 through 2022.

A wine with blackberry and spices with dark chocolate as well. Full and polished, with a lovely integration of fruit and tannins. Shows tension. Best after 2012.

The 2009 Perenzo (100% Syrah) is a full-bodied, opulent wine bursting with dark fruit, licorice, leather and sweet spices, all of which come together nicely. The Perenzo impresses for its long, polished finish and finessed tannins. The estate gave the Perenzo 18 months in French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019.

A ripe version, with jammy cassis and boysenberry flavors. This is well-structured, too, with a minty note following through on the finish. Syrah. Best from 2012 through 2016.

Sweet dark blueberries, blackberries, menthol, pine and flowers meld together in this mid-weight Syrah. Although a touch lithe through the mid-palate, the Perenzo compensates with a beautifully articulated, long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.

Dark ruby. Pure aromas of violet, blackberry and dark plum. Smooth, dense and focused on entry, with lively flavors of ripe black fruits and hints of aromatic herbs and minerals. Finishes smooth and long, with an austere quality.

Black licorice, mineral and blueberry on the nose. Full-bodied, with silky and refined tannins. Plenty of fruit here, yet reserved and very pretty. Syrah. Best after 2010.
