Vivid violet and crimson red in color, the SassodiSole Rosso di Montalcino offers juicy aromas of blackberries, black cherries and raspberries with hints of vanilla, dried herbs, black pepper and an enticing flintiness. Backed by great terroir, the palate offers flavors that echo the nose, along with warm plum, black, blue and brambly fruit that all hang together in harmony with superb structure, vivacity and freshness. Silken and refined, the SassodiSole Rosso has a pinpoint balance to its enticing flavors, fused to a mineral, saline streak that maintains the wine’s traditional, Italian character, as opposed to a more international profile. Medium bodied, flavorful and versatile, the wine finishes with well-balanced tannins and a persistent, aromatic finish. The label may designate Rosso’ di Montalcino but it’s poise and layers of succulent, minerally fruit, suggests a wine finer than many Brunelli!
