Product Overview

The 2015 Jacopo Biondi Santi Sassoalloro, from the Tuscan region of Maremma, takes its name from one of the area's most recognizable landmarks: an imposing glacial outcropping of volcanic origin which has inspired many local legends. This "Super Tuscan" is made entirely from Sangiovese Grosso BBS 11, the exclusive clone owned by the Biondi Santi family. A brilliant ruby red color in the glass, it offers intense, fresh aromas of red fruits and sweet violets with an elegant, vevety palate and gentle tannins. Enjoy this dynamic wine over the next 25 years with roasted meats and salt-water fish.

Varietal Composition: 100% Sangiovese Grosso BBS 11
Appellation: Toscana IGT
Farming Practices: Sustainable
Aging: 14 months in French barriques

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Sassoalloro is an earthy and savory wine that reveals the ripe and exuberant fruit that is characteristic of this warm vintage. Dark cherry and dried blackberry aromas segue to spice, leather, tar and tobacco. The wine is soft and lush in terms of mouthfeel, with more primary fruit flavors on the close." -ML, 11/30/17
