Elegant, refined, innovative.
We were six in class. The teacher told us the legend of Sant’Egidio, the Saint came from Rhone Valley in France, also the patron of our little parish of Vaiano. We wondered how the legends could endure so much over time. Today we raise the Syrah, the vines come from the Rhone Valley, and we ask Che Syrah sarà (“Wich Syrah will be”)… and if history will repeat itself.
Che Syrah sarà I.G.T. Umbria is made by 100% Syrah.
