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.
An Estate comprising 12 hectares of vineyards, with eight hectares designated for the Valopolicella grapes. The south-easterly facing vineyard sits at 200 to 250 metres
above sea level atop a volcanic- basaltic soil structure. Trained to the Guyot pruning method, the ten year old vines are planted at a density of 7,500 vines per hectare
and yield 1.2 kg per plant.
The grapes were hand harvested during the first week of October once the grapes had reached full phenolic maturity. 50% of the wine was made from fresh grapes
and 50% from grapes which had been slightly dried on racks, for 20 days. The grapes were then fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 25
to 28°C with a maceration lasting 15 days. During which time, the cap was pumped over and punched down daily. A natural malolactic fermentation took place in wood. Each parcel was aged for 20 months in oak (50% in French barriques of which 20% were new oak) and (50% in Slovonian oak barrels). The cuvees were then blended and bottled, before being bottled aged for 10 months prior to release.
Rich and concentrated with hints of smoke, tar and spices. Round and harmonious with plenty of personality.
A concentrated wine which matches grilled red meats with a flavoursome sauce, pasta dishes and antipasti.
