Very enjoyable sangiovese wine with firm yet soft tannins and that characteristic palate of dark cherries. Nice finish. 14.5% Alc

The Sassetti has been producing wines since the early 1900’s and pursues a quest for absolute quality. Their harvest is delayed to allow the Sangiovese grape to ripen to its full potential even at risk of looming weather and is aged in barrel a minimum of 3 years. This wine is ripe with red fruits and the aroma of Tuscan clay. An amazing pair with lamb ragú.



Tasting Notes:

Vasco Sassetti Brunello di Montalcino has a wide, open nose with ripe aromas of black cherry, black pepper, tobacco, raspberry and eucalyptus. The palate is equally complex and interesting, with flavors of ripe raspberry, black cherry, tobacco, tar, earth, and a touch of spice. It has great acidity and dryness that builds to sharp medium tannins.
