Fabrizio Dionistio "Castagnino" 2014 Syrah, $13.99-$15.99, 84 points, poured core black grading purple/red toward the broad clear wine ring.
The aroma was a basic toasty plum.
Barely medium-bodied, surprisingly good acidity, and mellow tannins managed cola, blueberry, and exceptionally grapey flavors.
Finished fair on the trailing palate, a hint of spice, developing plum, and a well-balanced 13.5% alcohol.
On the back label you'll see "Vendemmia" (The Grape Harvest), but in Italy it means more than just a harvest.
