Sassone Bianco di Toscana IGT 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

The name Sassone derives from the word "sasso" in italian - the pebble, that are easy to find in the forest located in the neighbourhood of our vineyards. The grapes used for this wine are grown in the plots with considerable presence of the same pebbles, wich facilitate the temperature regulation and help the vines to give the bunches all the necessary nutrients and to maintain strong minerality and fresh characteristics of the wine. Vinification: hand harvested, long fermented at controlled temperature in stainless stell tanks. Sassone is young and fresh wine with mineral lovely and vibrant acidity, pale golden in color. On the palate, this wine is light and crispy with a vibrant acidity structure. It displays fresh fruit aromas combined with mineral undertones. Beautifully balanced, with a clean lingering finish.

Fattoria Il Muro has been owned by the Pancaro family for more than two centuries. Its land has always been used for producing grapes. This is due to its particular environmental conditions that are ideal for the produc- tion of high quality wine enabling the growth of grape- vines in an environmentally sustainable and eco-friendly way. Indeed, the soil rich in marl and the temperate climate provide a microhabitat that improves the organoleptic qualities and the health of the grapes. Since the early 1970s, the late owner Francesco Pancaro, decided to specialize in winemaking. His engagement and work have been continued by the whole family, but mostly by his son Federico (agronomist). He is now engaged with updating the production techniques while keeping up the old traditions, aware that enthusi- asm, love for nature and respect for the environment are the only possibile recipe to maintain the high product quality. According to this philosophy only the grapes produced on their own land are being used for creating these high-quality wines produced in the historic wine-cellar, locally known as La Panchera.  Federico with his Team strive to produce the grape and his wines putting into the soil the intention to reach its highest capacities, trying to make each wine the best possible expression of Tuscan unique terroir. Only the finest grapes are selected and vinified at the Estate’s historic wine cellar following traditional methods, supported by innovative winemaking techniques. Winemaker. Stefano Di Blasi is talented winemaker responsible for making two of Italy's finest wines, Tignanello and Solaia. He is considered one of the most famous and prestigious agronomists in Tuscany.

A crisp fresh, very fragrant and delicious dry wine.
