Product Description

"Tenuta Sassoregale is in the Tuscan Maremma. Located in the south of the region, the Maremma’s wild, untouched territory is Italy's new wine frontier.
The estate is located among gently sloping hills covered in the medley of vegetation that makes up Mediterranean scrubland. Broom, arbutus, bramble briars, juniper, myrtle and heather grow among cork-oaks, holm oaks, cypresses and pines. All can be found in this soothing, wild landscape between the sea and the high hills of Montalcino rising to the north-northeast.
High planting densities, cordon spurtrained vines, low environmental impact vineyard management and meticulous cellar operations are all instrumental in preserving a strong, distinctively territorial imprint on wines that are known for their balance power and elegance.'" - Winery Notes

Sassoregale Sangiovese 2014 Tasting Notes

Its color is a bright ruby red. On the nose, it is clean and precise, with hints of morello cherries, wild berries and a moderate spiciness. On the palate it reveals a full-bodied, assertive flavor, which expresses both great intensity and elegance.

Sassoregale Sangiovese 2014 Pairings

Pair with  grilled red meats, but also with matured salt pork products or the traditional sheep’s milk cheeses of Tuscany.
