Sassaia Monferrato Rosso
A Super Piedmont blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo and Barbera Grapes. It is purplish blue with an inviting nose and full body. Scents of green pepper, ripe red pepper, blackberry, licorice and chocolate emerge as the wine opens. The well rounded and quietly confident nature is best explained by the blend of varietals. The breadth is further enhanced by the aging process which employs both softer Slavonian oak and a bolder French oak. Typically, it ages 18 months in large barriques, 6 in small barriques and 12 months in the bottle prior to release. Decant and serve at 60-65F.
