Jacopo Biondi Santi Sassoalloro 2018


In stock (can be backordered)

A new, fresh, round and dynamic Sangiovese from the great Biondi Santi tradition.
Sassoalloro is the name of a gigantic erratic rock of volcanic origin which for centuries has given rise to many legends.

The Biondi Santi family is among the most influential producers in Italy and all over the world. They are credited with inventing the formula for Brunello di Montalcino, and have produced some of the world’s best and most admired expressions of Sangiovese. In 1996, Jacopo, now the 6th generation, purchased a property named Castello di Montepò, located in Maremma (Tuscany), 60 miles southwest of Montalcino. He then planted the famous Sangiovese clones to produce a wine named Sassoalloro.

The wine is made with 100% Sangiovese Grosso, and aged in French oak barrels for 14 months, in a stellar vintage. It is an perfumed wine, with aromas of roses, ripe cherries and tobacco. The palate is round with firm tannins and fresh acidity. Drink now, but will develop in the next 5-8 years.
