Sasseo is the embodiment of the wish to create a Primitivo with a strong personality. Today, it is one of the most internationally successful wines from Puglia. Its name (alluding to sasso, ‘stone’ in Italian) expresses its direct relationship to the calcareous ‘stones’ that emerges from Salento’s red soil, forming a mirror-like surface that reflects the sun. Its unmistakable style is a perfect combination of freshness and softness, and it has a structure with just the right balance of complexity and density.
Colour: deep and dull ruby red.
Bouquet: the nose reveals full, intense aromas reminiscent of plums and red fruit jam with sweet spicy notes.
Flavour: a wine with considerable body, the palate is enveloping, warm and soft and expresses very ripe fruit, backed by a pleasurable backbone of sweet tannins.
Masseria Altemura-Puglia Sasseo Primitivo Salento 750ml
Nice to pair with aged cheeses and tapas. Good value for money and yet very decent wine.
good wine, but not for my taste bud
