Wine Advocate 91 points - A landmark wine in the landscape of Italian enology, the 2009 Sassoalloro is a pure expression of the special Sangiovese Grosso clone BBS11 that the Biondi Santi family has safeguarded in the Tuscan territories of Montalcino and Scansano respectively. The 2009 vintage still needs time to flesh out and find its footing. Red rose, dried blackberry, moist clay and button mushroom all make subtle appearances on the feminine bouquet. Firm structure is present to carry this wine forward over the years. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022. (Aug 2013)
A new, dynamic Sangiovese from the great Biondi Santi tradition. Sassoalloro is the name of a gigantic
erratic rock of volcanic origin which for centuries has given rise to many legends.
