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.
Grapes: Ciliegiolo 65%, Teroldego 35%
From our vineyards in Sovana; this reserve is produced only in particularly favorable years. It is a wine still in the "definition" phase but the goal is to combine the tannic structure of the teroldego with the elegance and softness of the cherry. The result of this vintage is already very promising even if the wine needs a longer aging time in the bottle.
Vineyards planted between 1998 and 2003, trained on the Guyot system, with a planting density of around 4500 plants per hectare. Manual harvest of the grapes in crates, each grape is processed separately.
Fermentation takes place without the addition of yeasts and lasts, including maceration, between 25 and 30 days. The wines mature for 18/30 months in second passage wood.
Ruby color, very consistent. The nose is broad: jam of small red fruits, cedar wood and black pepper combine to form the bouquet. In the mouth it is very warm and concentrated, soft, with well-present tannins; very long, but not heavy.
