This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Gold Series selection. The 2000 Sassolino is a Tuscan-inspired blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, from grapes grown exclusively on the Pietra Santa estate. Sassolino translates to “little stone” in Italian, and is in reference to the granite and limestone rich soils that add interesting characters and flavors to the wine. The 2000 Sassolino was awarded 87 Points – “Highly Recommended” by the Beverage Tasting Institute. On the nose, rich aromas of cherry, sandalwood, sage and vanilla are present, and the wine opens with good concentration and a medium body. The Sassolino is loaded with ripe, mouthfilling fruit, and displays opulent raspberry and blueberry flavors with hints of mint and spice. Pietra Santa’s Sassolino has excellent balance, soft tannins, and a supple texture that pairs well with grilled steaks or lamb chops. Aged 25 months in oak. 54% Sangiovese, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy now until 2010.

Winemaker's Notes:

This "Super Tuscan" style red wine is a blend of Sangiovese and Bordeaux varietals: grapes that are grown on our Estate, located 20 miles from Monterey Bay in the beautiful Cienega Valley. This vintage of Sassolino, "little stone" in Italian, exhibits ripe, juicy raspberry, blackberry, cinnamon, and allspice flavors all wrapped in sweet oak. --Alessio Carli, Winemaker
