Sassella is a particularly remarkable site - steep, stony and sun-baked. In the midst of it is the Paradiso vineyard, a veritable little wine paradise with superbly exposed slopes and a special magic of its own. The Nebbiolo grapes, which ripen here, give this wine a powerful structure. The soft tannins are harmoniously interwoven. Fruit aromas are intense but with great finesse. Sasso means stone, and countless small rocky terraces are one of the particular features of the site. In the middle there is a little chapel, also known as Sassella.

"An elegant red, with sleek tannins trimming a fresh range of macerated raspberry, sandalwood, lavender and iron flavors. Well-knit, featuring a creamy, lingering finish that echoes mineral and citrus peel notes."

Alison Napjus, December 2019
