TASTING NOTES

Jacopo Biondi Santi's winery represents the great international point of reference, located in the Tuscan region of Maremma. The winery in Castello di Montepò has an area of about 220 hectares planted with vines, vineyards that stretch along a hilly strip and go towards the plain of Albinia in the direction of the Tyrrhenian coast. The subsoil is made up of a considerable mineral wealth with vineyards growing Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and obviously Sangiovese too. Sassoalloro is the forefather of a new interpretation of the monovarietal Sangiovese: a label of immediate readiness, which keeps intact the characteristics of the greats of Tuscan wines. The name Sassoalloro derives from an exceptionally large boulder of volcanic origin which generated various legends over the centuries. This red wine is the product of the innovative intuition of Jacopo Biondi Santi, who opens the gate from the past to the future with a wine created through a new interpretation of Sangiovese vinified as a monovarietal. To create Sassoalloro, Sangiovese Grosso di Toscana grapes have to be carefully selected. Particular attention is paid to the fermentation and ageing in barriques. The wine encompasses all the typicality of the Biondi Santi winery both in terms of quality and variety, but, at the same time, we find a change with respect to the rules of long-ageing. After vinification, the wine rests in untoasted wooden barriques made with wood from the Tronçais forest, for 14 months. These precautions give Sangiovese Grosso di Montalcino all its value but with different characteristics from those of the past, becoming more attuned to current market demands. In the glass, it has a bright red colour with purple hues. The nose is fine and intense, coming alive with fresh and fruity aromas and notes of violet in the background. The palate is soft and velvety, in perfect balance between the precise acidity and subtle tannins, which are a prelude to the long and elegant finish. Open a bottle for Sunday lunch, pairing with refined red meat dishes. Read more Read less
LA CANTINA

Jacopo Biondi Santi

Jacopo Biondi Santi is the heir and continuator of one of the most illustrious names in Italian wine. He is in fact the son of Franco, the gentleman of Brunello, the one who made Tenuto il Greppo in Montalcino a great international reference point. Today, alongside the famous estate in the Montalcino region, Jacopo also manages the vast holdings of the historic Castello di Montepò, south of Grosseto, in the heart of the Maremma. It is a subjective and personal challenge that began in 1991 and from which linear and immediately comprehensible territorial interpretations were born, representing an international and modern style. The winery of Jacopo Biondi Santi's Castello di Montepò has truly remarkable vines spread across nearly 220 hectares. The vineyards are spread over a hilly and foothill belt, running from the north and east towards the Albinia plain and in the direction of the Tyrrhenian coast. The subsoils present a considerable mineral richness, characterised by a strong presence of schists. Among the rows are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and, of course, Sangiovese, the grape variety that has made the family's fortune. Between the rows, every operation is followed and monitored with great care by the winery team, as is also the case in every phase of vinification and ageing. The Jacopo Biondi Santi winery is a reality that, every year, produces several top-level reds, the fruit of the high wine-growing potential of the Maremma region. The Castello di Montepò represents one of the oldest and most important historical testimonies of the area, also known by the novelist Graham Greene, and the labels produced preserve this unmistakably Tuscan charm. Among the different bottles, the Sassoalloro elegantly interprets Sangiovese and is full-bodied yet elegant on the palate. Name and address of producer/distributor: Cantina Girlan, Str. Montepò - 58054 Scansano (GR). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
