Also known as Durif in France, Peite Sirah has a long history as a blending grape, used for adding colour and tannins to red blends. Although a family member of Peloursin and Syrah, Petite Sirah bears little resemblance to its namesake and parent Syrah.
This label has become very popular over the years. Full-bodied wine from this uniquely California grape. With touches of fig, cocoa and licorice, it has a very interesting and lingering finish. Maggio is made by Oak Ridge Winery, the oldest operating winery in Lodi, California.
This blend of Petite Sirah and Merlot comes off ripe and savory. Juicy from first sip, with silky tannins.
