Description

There are some serious values to be had in Italian wine if you know where to look - and Puglia is a great place to start. Sasseo means stony and refers to the limestone-seamed red earth the Primitivo grapes are grown in. Right in 'the heel' of Italy's boot, the IGT called Salento produces very ripe fruit, which are mellowed with 12 months’ maturation in large format Slovenian oak.

Smells

A charming nose is resplendent with wild cherries, baked dark fruits, violets, liquorice and dried spices.

Tastes

Sweetly fruited and spicy wine with lovely soft tannins, the velvety, full-bodied palate makes it the perfect partner to rich, meaty dishes and Cacio e Pepe. Best in its youth, it will cellar to 2024.
