Società Agricola Il Sasso Valpolicella Classico
Grapes: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella
Società Agricola Il Sasso is a groundbreaking organic estate in Valpolicella working with 10 hectares of Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella growing on terraced, south-facing hills in Storica, just outside Verona. All grapes are hand-harvested and fermented with native yeasts in a mix of concrete and ceramic barrels - wood is avoided in order to emphasise the character and freshness of the grapes.
This is the Valpolicella Classico made from partially de-stemmed grapes, lightly crushed and using only the free-run juice before pressing. Wonderfully fresh and lifted with crunchy cranberry, red cherry, wild herb and pepper aromas.
