Underbrush, camphor, forest berry and a potpourri of botanical herbs lead the way on this stunning wine. The chiseled, savory palate is loaded with finesse and intriguing tension, doling out pomegranate, blood orange, licorice and truffle while flinty mineral adds depth. Firm, refined tannins and bright acidity provide the elegant backbone. Drink through 2034.
The 2009 Valtellina Superiore Sassella Riserva Rocce Rosse is a powerful, dense wine. Beguiling in its first impression, the 2009 opens up to reveal an exotic bouquet laced with dark spice, smoke, rose petal, lavender and star anise. On the palate, the 2009 is statuesque and ravishing in its beauty. More than anything else, it is the interplay of richness and structure that is so compelling here.
