The Kaid Syrah by Alessandro di Camporeale is a pure organic wine made from the grapes of the international grape variety that best suits the Sicilian territory. A Syrah of the highest level. Syrah is considered the most “Sicilian” international variety there is; its origins are not very clear and even well-known scholars are convinced that the name of the vine recalls the city of Syracuse. Already established in 1989, it has adapted wonderfully to the climatic conditions of this territory.
The Kaid Syrah has a dark ruby color, impenetrable to the eye but not to the nose, where it intrigues with its rich notes of blackberry, black cherry, currant, cocoa, roasted coffee, rhubarb, leather, black pepper and cloves. On the palate it is imposed with its territorial, powerful and velvety personality.
For the production of his wines, and of Kaid Syrah, Alessandro di Camporeale uses non-invasive methods that make use of small natural stratagems, such as the use of roses as sentinels for oidium attacks and herbaceous crops that favor soil fertilization. Biological
