Sassaia / Monferrato Rosso Black Label 2010 / 750 mL
This dynamic red is a Super Piedmont blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo and Barbera grapes sourced from the Monferrato wine region, which is located below the River Po in the southeast corner of Piedmont. It's purplish blue with an inviting nose and full body. Scents of green pepper, ripe red pepper, blackberry, licorice and chocolate emerge as the wine opens. The breadth is further enhanced by the aging process which employs both softer Slavonian oak and a bolder French oak. Delicious with roasted meats, pasta dishes with wild boar, and mature cheeses.
