Valpolicella, Veneto, Italy
50% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella, 10% Molinara & Oseleta
'Saseti' is named for the "little stones" found in the limestone soils of the terraced estate vineyard. The label features five wine-colored handprints, those of husband-wife vignaioli Carlo and Alessandra Zantedeschi and their three children. They are noted with the observation oltre al cuore, solo queste or “besides heart, only these” in the bottle, indicative of the purity of and intention behind even their entry-level Valpolicella, not to mention the rest of the stellar Monte Dall’Ora line-up.
With a low alcohol content and a high level of juicy fruits, this mineral-rich, bright blend is complex and punches above its weight.
