"Opulent and gorgeously complex, the enticing bouquet shows blackberry, dark chocolate, cake spice and assorted nut aromas, followed by a concentrated palate displaying rich texture backed by velvety tannins. Substantial and mouth filling with layers of delectable flavours."
- Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"Worth holding your nose to the glass for a while, to eek out the plummy, slightly chocolaty fruit character, together with an interesting, sweaty mineral note that turns to a more herbal trait. Medium-bodied with good intensity and balance and more straightforward fruit flavors. The tannins are sunk into the wine, allowing for a racy, fresh and almost tangy fruit finish. Lots going on here. Drink now."
- James Suckling

Indeed, the name Sasseo (“stony”) chosen for this Primitivo is intended to recall the uniqueness, sunniness and strength of the terroir that one finds in the glass.

An intense ruby red, it offers scents of sour cherries, violets, liquorice and sweet spicy hints. It is velvety, warm and persistent: a wine to sip slowly together with a substantial dish or whilst just reading a book.
