Sassoalloro is the emblematic wine in the Biondi Santi range, fruit of the development of a Sangiovese clone in the hands of this family for over 200 years. A masterpiece of Italian winemaking that exhibits on the nose a perfect balance between the pleasantness of the notes of violets and red forest fruits and the austerity of its aromas of earth and undergrowth.

As a result of judicious ageing for 14 months in French barrels without toasting, the elegance and the powerfulness too come together on the palate. With a velvety texture and a delightful smoothness, the Sassoalloro's balance is centred upon a good structure which augurs longevity. An enveloping and elegant Sangiovese, with the style and perfection that we have become accustomed to from the Biondi Santi family's other winery, Greppo.
