Sassi Barbaresco 2018
Founded in 1997 by Angelo Sassi, the small estate is today run by Davide Carniel, producing just a few hundred cases of Barbaresco annually. Both of the wines we’re offering come from San Cristoforo, a well known Barbaresco cru in the heart of the appellation.
The Barbaresco 2018 is pure Nebbiolo from an excellent, ripe vintage. The wine ages for 2 years in barrel, then six months in bottle before release. We found this wine beautifully balanced, with a nose of violets, red cherries, black pepper and anise. The mouth is compact and attractive, with delicate tannins and a refreshing salinity, amid sophisticated and polished wild cherry fruit.
