- +

Key features

Grape VarietySangiovese



StyleFull Bodied & Rich




The name Biondi-Santi is synonymous the world over with the creation of Brunello in 1869, when the founding father, Clemente Santi, won two silver medals for his vino rosso scelto del 1865, now commonly known as Brunello. Today their wines are hugely famous & carry a glittering reputation for quality & aging potential, the wines were also a favourite of our very own Queen Elizabeth when in 1969, Italy’s President Giuseppe Saragat served Biondi Santi Brunello Riserva 1955 to Queen Elizabeth and other dignitaries at the Italian Embassy in London, the success of the selection gave the Biondi-Santi international acclaim & saw a surge in interest & demand for Brunello which Until the late 1960's, was made only in small quantities by just a few estates and consumed almost entirely in Italy.  

named after a legendary piece of volcanic rock, Sassoalloro is a powerful expression of Sangiovese, the violety, spicy nose is deeply engaging, the palate is lush, rich & velevety soft with deep, dark & spicy fruit, very approachable & drinkable now, yet another sensational bottle from Biondi-Santi.
