Description

Baglio di Pianetto “Shymer” Syrah Merlot IGT 2013

Make an everyday meal special or celebrate an occasion in style with Baglio di Pianetto’s Shymer. So pure, so inviting, so mouthwatering. The name “Shymer” combines the words Shyraz (Syrah) and Merlot. It also echoes the French word for Chimera, a fantastical creature of Greek mythology that symbolises seemingly impossible dreams and wishes. Much like the Marzotto Family’s dream to create wines that combine Sicilian character and French elegance.

Drawing of a Chimera by Jacopo Ligozzi. Described in Homer’s ‘The Iliad’ as an immortal creature made up of three animal parts: a lion with a snake tail and a grotesque goat as its middle. Variations of the creature in Greek mythology have a dragon at its hind, as depicted in Ligozzi’s drawing. In both Ligozzi’s drawing and Homer’s description, the Chimera is a female fire-breathing monster. (Source: Rearview Mirror)

Deep and clear ruby red colour. Generous berry fruit and floral bouquet with ripe cherry, currant, blackberry and strawberries followed by roses, lavender and violets. Sophisticated and balanced, the berry fruit flavours are layered with pepper, caramel, coffee, gentle cinnamon and oak spices. Full-bodied and dry with a fresh taste and smooth tannins that closes off with a persistent cinnamon and pepper finish.

Comprises a blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Merlot. The Syrah is from vineyards in Contrada Baroni, Noto (SR), located 50 metres above sea level with medium-textured and sandy soils. The Merlot is from vineyards in Contrada Pianetto, Santa Cristina Gela (PA), located 650 metres above sea level with soils rich in clay, gravel and minerals. The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand before they are destemmed and lightly pressed. Early natural fermentation of the grapes using their own yeasts, maceration with the aid of marc presses and delestage fermentation in order to preserve the variety’s primary character. Ageing for 12 months in new or second/third fill French oak barriques and then in bottle for a further 24 months.
