Dark black cherries, flowers, mint, and spice on the nose. The palate has fabulous concentration and depth, with just enough tannin and aromatic complexity to balance the fruit and acidity. Elegant black cherry fruit is layered into the persistent finish.

Here is another late-release Sangiovese from Casanova della Spinetta, only in this case, fruit is sourced from precious 50-year-old vines. The 2007 Sassontino is a concentrated, thickly layered and aged wine packed tight with dried fruit, spice, smoke and tar. There is a lot of tertiary definition here, and unlike the other late-release wine, the Sezzana, this bottle is less oxidative and still shows some recognizable fruit. Roto-fermenters are used to obtain rich extraction, and the wine is aged in tonneaux for up to 14 months. Production is 10,000 bottles.
