Two Thousand fourteen is the flagship vintage for Mattina Fiore’s Barrel Select Syrah. The 2014 Regina Madre is named after Scott’s mother Regina (Jean). “Regina Madre” translates from Italian to English as, “Queen Mother”, fitting for both her and our Barrel Select Syrah. Throughout the 26 months of aging in 100% new French oak from the Allier forest, we have hand selected these barrels as our finest selection of the 2014 vintage of Syrah. The Devine barrels chosen for this wine have thinner staves allowing a higher degree of micro oxidation to take place. The hand harvested 2014 vintage from Murmur Vineyards was extraordinarily exceptional, yet only a small portion of this vintage becomes Regina Madre. Only the truly exceptional barrels of the vintage are selected and blended. Elegantly packaged and hand numbered. The 2014 Regina Madre has been aged after bottling for 16 months before its release. “From Our Hands To Yours” We are proud to debut the Queen Mother, our 2014 Regina Madre as a loving tribute to her and to the finest of our Syrah's.
