This is a selection from our private cellar thanks to dear friends Carla and Edoardo who have created truly unique wines.
The wines of Sassotondo want to be an expression of this powerful and mysterious territory: the native vines and an environment that is in some respects extreme – with the tuff that emerges everywhere – produce fine and elegant wines, naturally concentrated, savory and spicy.
Tuscan Maremma DOC
Grape: Cherry 100%
Cilegiolo from our vineyards of Sovana and Pitigliano. Vineyards partly old (35 years old) partly new (1995-2003), trained according to the guyot system with a layout that varies from 3,000 to 4,500 plants per hectare.
The grapes are harvested and selected manually. Fermentation takes place without the addition of yeasts and lasts, including maceration, between 15 and 20 days. Matures for a few months in steel. Clear ruby red colour, with a beautiful vivacity; the nose is intense and persistent with notes of mulberry and cherry, plum and a spicy touch of black pepper.
The taste is dry, warm tending towards soft thanks to unobtrusive tannins and a sustained and enveloping structure.
