For over a century the Sassetti family has farmed some of Montalcino’s finest vineyards. The property is nestled on a slope in the Montosoli hill, North of Montalcino, reputed one of the most favourable terroirs for Sangiovese. Today the estate is managed by Lorenzo Sassetti, Livio’s son, fourth generation family member and passionate winemaker, that is upholding the family name and reputation with the enthusiastic support of his wife Sabina. Lorenzo’s aim is to hand-craft outstanding wines of great character, balance and elegance with an uncompromising commitment to quality, combining modern winemaking techniques to his family time-honoured traditions. He has developed a distinctive style resulting in well balanced and round textured wines, recognized as some of the finest in the region and among the greatest of Montalcino. Moved by a strong interest in winemaking he decided to approach different styles acquiring two properties in Italy’s finest wine-producing areas, rising Tuscan Maremma and lively Valdobbiadene. All of Lorenzo’s wines have deep roots in their respective terroirs, showcasing his willingness to preserve their traditional features.
