Producer Note
Roccolo Grassi was established in 1996 by Bruno Sartori and his two children
Francesca and Marco. Based in Veneto, they produce wines of unique character
and strong personality, which are expressive of their origins. Winemaker Marco
Sartori is one of hottest talents in the region. His philosophy is very simple; yields in the
vineyard are significantly reduced to obtain a fabulous fruit concentration. The 14
hectares of vines are farmed sustainably and minimal intervention takes place in the
winery. The result is a collection of world class wines distinguished by their pure
elegance.
Vineyard
The estate comprises 13 hectares of vineyard with a total production of only 38,000
bottles per annum. The vines are grown in volcanic soils.
Winemaking
The grapes were dried until the first week of December. The fermentation and
maceration followed, taking place in tank and lasting for 30 days. Once the
alcoholic fermentation was finished, the juice was then transferred to French oak
barriques of which 50% were new, for a period of 24 months. This was followed by 18
months in bottle, prior to release.
Tasting Note
A rich and opulent wine, showing intense aromas of ripe dark berried fruits with a
hint of bitter almond. Beautifully concentrated deep fruits are layered with nuances
of elegant oak and savoury notes, on the complex palate. Smooth, with supple
tannins and a fine, lingering finish - this is a wine to be savoured.
Serving Suggestion
Pair with traditional dishes from Veneto, pasta with a strong tomato or truffle sauce,
beef, game and stews such as steak, lamb, venison and wild boar.
