Awards & Reviews

95pts – Jeni Port, published 01 Aug 2020 (Halliday Wine Companion)

From a fab year in Tasmania comes a pinot noir that beautifully exemplifies the meaning of ‘brooding’ young red.  It’s a challenge to describe; you drink in large gulps of verbiage. Dark, dense, back-to-back black fruits, stewed rhubarb, truffle and leather, violets. It's both savoury and fruit-focused; red liquorice mixes it up with smokey clove and cigar box. Tannins run and run. And still so young Cork 13.5% alc  


Wine Details 

We have three unique blocks of Pinot Noir (II Giardino, La Roccia & Ruscello). The fruit from these blocks are specifically chosen for this wine as they produce fruit of the highest quality. This wine is medium weighted, with soft savoury tannins and well-balanced acidity. "A style in which I have always enjoyed making and drinking" - Steve Lubiana. The wine is only produced in exceptional years with the 2017 being only the 7th year of Sasso.

Low vigour. Low yields of 2.5 tonne per hectare.
