Situated just outside Verona, in the Morainic Hills near Lake Garda, Vini Sassara is a new project from longtime natural winemakers Alessia and Stefano Bertaiola. Esotico 2020 was the first release from Vini Sassara, and what a debut wine it is. Made from no less than 10 different grape varieties - a mix of 30% red grapes (Corvina, Rossanella, Rondinella, Molinara) and 70% white grapes (Fernanda, Moscato, Trebbianello, Trebbiano, Garganega, Tocai), co-fermented, with skins for 10 days, this is a wine that is almost impossible to define. Is it red? Is it orange? Who cares, it’s absolutely delicious – light, bright, elegant, with notes of pomegranate, grapefruit, tangerine and wet stone.
