TUESDAY NIGHT MEAT LOVER: SUPER-TUSCAN SYRAH

Podere Le Ripi began their venture in Montalcino in 2003, and has become a player to watch after they released a bottling called Bonsai under the Rosso di Montalcino appellation at $300+, the most expensive Rosso di Montalcino in the region. The vineyard sourced for the wine exceeds the planting density allowed by the appellation, planting 62,500 plants/hectare, or a plant every 40 centimeters. While that’s not on offer today, it gives you an idea of the forward thinking possessed by this house’s visionary leader, Francesco Illy, heir to the Illy coffee empire. This Syrah bottling from the estate always caught my eye at Pappas for new world wine lovers looking to explore Old World styles with their steaks. The wine is dense and peppery, with ample body and texture. The oak is stylish and noticeable, but integrated enough to allow Syrah’s pepper and meaty notes to shine. We got it on a great deal and are passing on that deal to our friends!
