Winemaker Notes

This deep, spicy red was produced in very small quantities, Scrio quickly became a benchmark in Bolgheri. The name of the wine, inspired by a Tuscan expression that means "pure, candid, whole," perfectly describes its defining characteristics

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling - 98pts

This is another magical edition of Scrio; the crazy peppermint, rosemary, cypress and oregano perfumes should be enough to prove that. But then comes gravitas, in the form of pure blackcurrants and blackberries with graphite. Hints of dried meat. This strikes such a fine balance between power and finesse, wrapping up beautifully polished tannins and blue fruit in a velvet extravaganza of flavor and depth. This doesn’t have quite the muscularity as the legendary 2015, but, boy, does it deliver!

Wine Enthusiast - 96pts

Cedar, cassis, camphor and French oak aromas lead the nose on this 100% Syrah. The fullbodied palate features ripe blackberry, raspberry jam, dark exotic spice, dried mint and espresso alongside tightly-knit fine-grained tannins. It’s well balanced, with fresh acidity that lifts the licorice close. Drink 2022–2031.

Wine & Spirits - 94pts

With scents of fresh violets and crushed black peppercorns, this pure syrah is reminiscent of a great Cornas. Its juicy plum and blackberry flavors take on notes of licorice and black spice with air, while ferrous minerality and grippy tannins give it the savor and structure for grilled game.
