Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Sangiovese ruby red, rich and bright. The elegant sensations of cherry and violet come out decisive at the first olfactory approach and then leave room for the boisé. The spicy aromas are expressed with elegance, precision and a lot of details; given by the texture of the woods in which it matures. To the taste tannins are silky, dense and fresh, never unbalanced. The unmistakable flavor of BBS11 makes it a harmonious and elegant wine.
Vineyard Notes
Sassoalloro Oro was born in an extraordinary land, where galestro mineral varieties contribute to an optimal development of the plant by giving its fruits unique and representative scents of the territory. We are in the “Aia di Clemente”, 6 hectares, a small garden in Montepò. The vineyard is exposed to the East, South-East (112.5° compass) and the slope is 17%. Its rows have a length of about 280 meters and the average production settles at 41 q/ha with a production per stump of 780 gr.
Production Notes
The grapes were desteped and crushed before fermentation in steel vats. Reassembly and delestages have been carried out until the must sugars are exhausted. The must was derailed on October 12, cleaned of lees and then carried out malolactic fermentation always in steel vats. In December, at the end of the malolactic fermentation, the wine was refined in barrels of 28.5hl Slavonia oak and 225-liter barriques for 16 months. Then the final mass was assembled and bottling proceeded on May 26, 2021.
Winemaker Notes
To celebrate the 30° anniversary of Sassoalloro (1991-2021), the iconic wine of the Castello di Montepò, we produced Sassoalloro Oro, fruit of the study that lasted several years between Jacopo and Tancredi Biondi Santi in collaboration with the winemaker Donato Lanati. The selected vineyard is located in a portion of Galestro with good slope and has east, south-east exposure. There is no irrigation in the vineyards precisely to favor a deep and well-resistant radical development even in the most droughty vintages.
Food & Wine Pairing
Sassoalloro Oro finds its natural combination with traditional Tuscan cuisine, especially with roasted game meats and medium-aged cheeses. It is an excellent meditation wine, to be tasted alone or on special occasions. It has an estimated longevity of 30 years.
More Information
From Sangiovese Grosso BBS11 grapes, a clone owned by the Biondi Santi family, Sassoalloro Oro comes from vineyards with excellent exposure and from plants over 15 years old.
