Tenimenti Spinsanti Sassone - Marche Rosso IGT
The flagship wine of the Spinsanti winery and a wine worthy of every table. A blend of 60% Montepulciano and 20% each of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this is an international style of wine yet with the typical Italian flair. It has an intense ruby colour, aromas of cherry, coffee, cloves and liquorice and a full and bold palate with savoury flavours that last for an age in the finish. A very high class red. A sort of Super - Conero if such a thing existed!

This bold red was made from 35 year old vines (the oldest on the property) and only 650 cases were produced. The fermentation was in stainless stell vats with a long vatting on the skins. After the malolactic fermentation the wine was then aged in small oak barrels for 18 months before bottling without fining or filtration and further ageing in the bottle.
Wine Spectator: 90 points
It is recommended to serve the Sassòne in a decanter at a temperature of about 16-18 degrees.
