Description

Made from a strict selection of grapes – exclusively of the Primitivo variety – grown on a terrain of reddish ochre earth mixed with slabs of limestone that have been crushed (according to the unique technique known as spietramento), the Masseria Altemura “Sasseo” is intended to recall the uniqueness, sunniness and strength of the terroir that one finds in the glass. When vinification is completed, the wine ages for 12 months in 350-liter (92-gallon) tonneaux of French oak, followed by a further period of fining in the bottle.

Tasting Notes

  • Palate
    A wine of a good body, it has a mouth-filling flavour that is warm and soft and expresses a highly mature fruitiness, supported by a pleasant complex of sweet tannins.
  • Nose Nose
    Full and intense aromas with hints of plums, jams of red fruits and sweet accents of spices.
  • Appearance Appearance
    Dark and profound ruby red.

Sommelier Review

“A dense, herbaceous bouquet with a lovely vaguely cinnamon spicy element that brings to mind forest undergrowth. The tannins are tingling and pervasive; covering the palate with a slippery mouth feel. Part of the estate's Cru line, Sasseo is aged in large oak casks and should be consumed within the next three years.”
