Just Arrived - 2020 Sassaiolo Roso Piceno

Just Arrived

A fabulous new Italian red has just arrived...

2020 Sassaiolo Roso Piceno, Monte Sciavo, Marche, Italy (Organic) 13.5%

We have stocked the Pallio di San Floriano Verdicchio from Monte Schiavo for several years so when a sample of the latest vintage of their Sassaiolo Rosso Piceno landed further investigation was required...

This is a blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Montepulciano which shows ripe black cherry fruit on the nose and rich damson character on the palate, with a gentle note of spice. Fans of Rosso Passo from Lenotti - a 50/50 Sangiovese/Merlot blend - really should also try this, another fascinating Sangiovese blend.

The Monte Sciavo winery was established by the Pieralisi family in 1976 and under the supervision of Gennaro Pieralisi and his son Andrea, production has progressed from its initial focus on the Verdicchio grape, to now include red wines made from their own fruit.  All grapes are organically grown and the winery has a wider focus on the entire local ecosystem, preserving local flora and fauna and using solar energy for their electricity.  There is a constant drive to improve quality and reduce yields which increasingly shows in the glass.
