Valtellina, Lombardia

Sassella Riserva Rocce Rosse


From a unique terroir, even by this dramatic valley’s standards. From a single plot of fifty year old vines planted over red granite near the top of the Sassella cru at nearly 500 metres above sea level. The wine sees a maceration of forty days in tini and rests in huge old chestnut casks for four years before bottling. It is complex and intense, with a wild, sanguine note from the iron in the soils and a pronounced minerality. A wine with an uncanny sense of place.
