The Selverello Cortona DOC Syrah embodies the essence of the Cortona territory, one of the hottest areas in Tuscany. The unique climate, with a significant temperature range between day and night, allows the Syrah variety to reach optimal maturity. After an 18-day maceration and fermentation that starts at 20°C and reaches 28°C, the wine matures for six months in large oak casks. The result is a wine with a luminous, limpid ruby red color, with rich and pronounced aromas of fresh fruit and a subtle spice typical of the variety. On the palate, it opens full and satisfying, with soft, elegant tannins, concluding with a full-flavored, long-lasting finish.

The Dal Cero Family winery has a history that begins in 1934 when Augusto Dal Cero founded the company by buying the first lands in the Crocetta and Calvarina area. After having fought in the war, Augusto returned and decided to devote himself to viticulture on those lands that were difficult to work, but very particular. Subsequently, the sons of Augusto, Dario and Giuseppe, broadened the horizon of their father's dream and also dedicated themselves to the production of great red wines in Tuscany. Today, the third generation of the Dal Cero family - Davide, Nico and Francesca - continues to carry on the winemaking tradition with great passion, respecting the values ​​of the land, sustainability and the direct relationship with the soil. The Dal Cero winery has a deep knowledge of the land and its secrets, which it transforms into unique and distinctive wines, testifying to the continuity of the family work through the generations. Their wines represent the perfect synthesis between tradition and innovation, they are the result of a passion that comes from afar and has evolved over time, with eyes always focused on the future.
