I like on the table,
when we're speaking,
the light of a bottle
of intelligent wine.

Tuscan character

Immersed in the Mediterranean scrubland, between tall trees and broom shrubs, Sassoregale lies in the heart of the Maremma region. Purchased in 2002 by Santa Margherita Gruppo Vinicolo, the estate’s 38 hectares (30 of which vineyards) are situated in the centre of a plain surrounded by hills, at altitudes between 100 and 180 metres above sea level, with higher ground stretching towards Montalcino behind it. The vineyards overlook the Tyrrhenian Sea, just a few kilometres away as the crow flies. The first impression of Sassoregale is the light, the clearness of the sky, and the strength of the sun, mitigated by the constant breezes. This, together with the great biodiversity that characterizes the wide valley of the Ombrone river and growing techniques that respect the vines and the environment, make the estate a little universe where the hand of man manages to preserve the deep characteristics of the terroir.

The rich soils are deep and medium-textured. They are mainly clay based, but a small area, planted to syrah, is sandier with gravel. In addition to syrah, the vineyards are also home to sangiovese, merlot and vermentino. The vines are spurred-cordon trained vines and planted with a high density of over 5,000 per hectare. Meticulous farming methods – Sassoregale is currently being converted to organic cultivation – ensure the harvesting of fruit at perfect technological, phenolic and aromatic ripeness, providing an ideal raw material for the production of wines that are both rich and elegant.

Vermentino

Maremma Toscana DOC

Technical Information

The grapes are harvested at full technological and aromatic ripeness to enhance their aromatic potential and structure. Off-the-skins vinification begins with the soft-pressing of the grapes and continues with fermentation in steel tanks, where the wine stays in contact with the lees for about five months in order to acquire further nuances of flavour.

 

Tasting Note

A bright straw yellow heralds the intense, elegant bouquet where the dominant citrus and white-fleshed fruits are threaded with appealing hints of Mediterranean herbs. On the palate it unfolds over an intriguingly agile structure nicely paced by a well-sustained savouriness.

 

Food Matchings

Ideal with vegetable or fish-based starters and excellent with all saltwater fish preparations, including first and main courses served with aromatic herbs or spices. Perfect with Catalan-style lobster.

La Maremma
 

La Maremma

Maremma is the last wild corner of Italy, the area that remained isolated from human activity longest. A marshland for centuries, and a natural refuge for many animal species, it always eluded farming. Even today it is aloof and sometimes rugged, modelled by the explosive force of nature. While the great 20th-century reforms made thousands of hectares available, they did not manage to alter the natural environment radically. Its thick and often impenetrable scrubland is still inhabited by wild boar, roe deer and fallow deer, and horses are still an invaluable means of transport for venturing into its woods and along its coastal dunes.

It is an environment where sunny plains alternate with rolling hills and meadows, followed by particularly verdant woodland, where broom, strawberry trees, juniper, myrtle, heather, brambles, cypresses, cork oaks and pines triumph in a succession of colours and perfumes. However, this still untamed land is an incredible reserve of culture and traditions that are slowly, but constantly, enhancing their heritage. It is the new frontier of Italian gourmet food and wine, which probably remains the most authentic and genuine one.
