Jacopo Biondi Santi Castello di Montepò Sassoalloro is a bright, dynamic Sangiovese with an impressive pedigree. The name Sassoalloro (first vintage 1991) references a volcanic boulder on which legends have been built. It presents with a brilliant ruby colour, a nose of red fruits and hints of violet, and a palate of remarkable elegance, roundness, and equilibrium.

Pair Jacopo Biondi Santi Castello di Montepò Sassoalloro with red meat dishes such as lamb, pasta in herby tomato sauces or any Tuscan foods.  It provides a robust flavour that elevates any meal and adds a touch of classic Tuscan charm. 

About the Producer

The Biondi Santi family has earned a place in the tradition of Italian wine thanks to the lively and passionate inventiveness that has distinguished it since the very beginning. The roots of this brilliant adventure go back to the 1800s, when Ferruccio Biondi Santi planted the first Montalcino vineyard with vines of a selected clone of Sangiovese, called Sangiovese Grosso or Brunello: it was the first step towards a new way of making wine that would soon in the history of Italian wine. Today it continues to improve under the leadership of Jacopo with the future secure thanks to help from his children, Tancredi, Clemente and Clio.
