Style: Smooth & Supple
Item no. 99590
Intense ruby red color. Black cherry, mixed berries, crisp, with a vegetal nose of fresh tomato leaves and minerals. Full-bodied, sweet tannins, impeccably balanced wood and acidity with a long, fine finish, very elegant. Should last 25 years.
The 2004 Sassontino is made in a similarly intense style, but it possesses a more layered expression of fruit. The wine took quite a bit of time to open in the glass, yet it offers outstanding potential. There isn’t a whole lot of Sangiovese typicity here, but this is very pretty wine nonetheless. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019.
