Press & Reviews
"The 2019 Rosso Conero Riserva Sassi Neri is a darkly alluring beauty with a dusting of cocoa, lavender, sweet tobacco and crushed blackberries. It washes across the palate with finesse, medium in weight and silky to the core, with tart wild berries and salty mineral tones, all under an air of violet flowers. While structured, there’s a potency of primary concentration and just enough residual acidity to maintain a lively expression. The 2019 finishes lightly structured with a licorice tinge. A simply stunning integration of fruit and oak aging has taken place here, making the 2019 one of the most balanced vintages of Sassi Neri that I’ve ever tasted."
