Il Sasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2018
Airy, and backed with a profound kick of fruit and spice.
Grapes: Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella
Region: Veneto, Italy
Il Sasso is a breath of fresh air in Valpolicella. A welcoming open to dark fruits, pepper and tobacco on the nose. Vegetal notes peak through and compliment the orchestra of juicy fruit. The palate follows in-suit with approachable tannins. A beautiful youthful version of a classic for those wishing to dip their toes into Northern Italian reds.
For Società Agricola Il Sasso, everything begins and ends in the vineyard. Their 10ha of organically farmed vines are situated at 300m above sea level on south-facing terraces. The soil is rocky, with only a few centimeters of topsoil sitting atop the typical 'calcarenite gialla', a yellowish soft limestone frequently found on Valpolicella's hills.
The team at Il Sasso works tirelessly to enhance the biodiversity of their vineyards and in turn increase the soils' vigour.
