- Order number: SW10007
Varietal composition: Merlot
Vinification: The wine is vinified following the traditional bordelaise method with a maceration period of 12 - 15 days at 28 – 30°C. Once the malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is matured for 15-18 months in barriques of French oak. Frequent racking from the lees allows the wine to be bottled without fining, filtration or other physical stabilization. This may result in slight sediment in the bottle.
Color: Deep and intense ruby red.
Bouquet: Harmonic and complex, an intense inviting fruity bouquet of plums and blueberries. With roasted and spicy nuances, and light hints of menthol.
Palate: Complex and fruity. It combines elegance and a superb structure with ripe and smooth tannins. Long with a good balance on the very persistent finish.
Aging: The Sassi Grossi 2017 will reach its full expressive potential beginning in spring 2019 and will continue to develop in character through 2028 and beyond if properly cellared. Best if uncorked one hour before serving.
