Il Grappolo, Sassocheto, Brunello di Montalcino, 2013, Italy

Refined, complex, and full-bodied, Sassocheto is the winery's iconic Brunello, a wine of great character. This extraordinary vineyard yields an equally-exceptional Brunello, firm-bodied and complex, yet at the same time lively and easy-drinking. The bouquet is utterly seductive, and the finish amazingly lengthy. This is a wine that displaces great class. "Made by hand and with love.”

FOOD PAIRING

Braised meat dishes and aged cheeses. Grilled, dry-aged beef, osso bucco, braised lamb shank in pan sauce.

Il Grappolo sits at 300 metres above sea level, in the southwest part of Montalcino which sees the most impact from the warm winds coming in from the Maremma coast. Sassocheto represents a selection from the winery's 20 year old vines in their south facing Piano Nero vineyard.

Sangiovese is a red Italian wine grape variety whose name derives from the Latin sanguis Jovis, "the blood of Jove." YoungSangiovese has fresh, fruity flavors of strawberry and a little spiciness, but it readily takes on oaky, even tarry, flavors whenaged in barrels. Sangiovese appears to have originated in Tus- cany, where it was well known by the 16th century. Sangiovese Grosso, also known as Brunello, is a century-old clone of thehistoric Sangiovese grape cultivated specifically for responsive- ness to aging.
