- Region: Lombardy
An intense and bright ruby red with excellent transparency. It is intense with fruity notes of red plum and black currant and floral notes of violets and cyclamen. This is also the moss and mineral notes reminiscent of freshly tilled soil. In the mouth it is soft and velvety, with sweet tannins and a pleasantly acidic aftertaste.
Best paired with red meat and game. It is also excellent with duck breast, baked guinea fowl, and medium-aged cheeses.
Sassella is a typical wine from Lombardy. It has a brilliant and deep garnet color. Its complex smell with aromas of strawberries, roses, and ripe black cherries brings in at the end a pleasant smell of dry prune and spices. DOCG* Certified.
When tasted, it is soft but sustained, which goes wonderfully with roasted red meats or strong cheeses.
DOCG* Certification: This classification denotes the highest quality recognition for Italian wines. In addition to the conditions required for DOC, the wines must be "guaranteed" by passing an analysis and a tasting by government-licensed personnel before being bottled. Also, DOCG rules reduce the allowable yield of grapes to produce the wine, limit specific alcohol levels, and minimum aging requirements.
