The typically humble and ubiquitous Sangiovese grape takes on elevated status in the Brunello DOCG. “Sassocheto” exemplifies the best characteristics of iconic Brunello.

AT A GLANCE

This Brunello speaks to the legacy represented by the coveted Montalcino vineyards. Rich and robust in character, Sassocheto is sourced from the single best vineyard of the Il Grappolo estate at 1000 feet above sea level for structure and freshness. These rocky, mineral-rich soils of south-facing vineyards contribute to the great character of this masterfully crafted wine. Fermented with native yeast, aged in large traditional Botti and neutral French barrels for a minimum of 30 months, the best barrels are then selected for the “Sassacheto” with 5 years of aging before release. Rigorous sustainable farming practices.
