92 points James Suckling

Tuscany, Italy
Grapes: Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot
From estate vineyards in Montalcino, a blend of 50% Sangiovese, and equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The Sangiovese was aged in traditional large oak barrels, like Brunello, while the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot matured in smaller French oak barrique. The ageing wines spent just approximately one year in barrel, before blending, and then a further 6 months in bottle before release.

“Sasso” means stone in Italian, and Sassarello refers to the small stones found in the Montalcino vineyards.

Tasting Note

Medium deep red colour with slight garnet tinges. Rich, with earthy aromas of dark cherry, plum, cocoa, and a touch of cedar/sandalwood. Medium-bodied, round on the palate, with good acidity and fine tannins and a relatively long finish.
