K&L Notes

The 2015 La Monacesca Syrah comes from the Marche’s Matelica Valley. The Matelica is a north-south valley, while the other Appennine valleys all flow east to west. In Italy (unlike California), any coastal air flow is coming off warm waters. Matelica’s orientation gives it a real continental climate with very cool summer nights, warm days and an exceedingly long growing season, which allows grapes to become physiologically ripe, not just a harvesting response to the sugar bloom. This allows nature to balance the wine. It’s a perfect climate for Verdicchio, but Aldo Cifola decided 25 years ago to plant a tiny amount of Syrah and he has waited until now to finally release one. This 2015 wine is 100% Syrah and spent 20 months in used barrique. Released in April of this year, it’s powerful and structured wine, and could use an hour or three in a decanter before current drinking.
