This Sassella Riserva Valtellina Superiore DOCG is brick red with a medium body.
There are hints of plum and walnut accompanied by woodland scents and an inkling of rust.
Smooth and velvety to the palate, this red wine is low in tannins with well-balanced acidity. There are deep notes of cherry and liquorice, followed by gentle spicy notes.
It pairs well with red meat, stewed fish and matured cheese.
This wine is suitable for long ageing.
Serving temperature: 16/18 ℃
Rainoldi's Sassella Riserva Valtellina Superiore DOCG spends 24 months maturing in oak barrels before being transferred to steel tanks for approximately two months followed by a further 24 months of ageing in the bottle in dark, cool cellars.
