Sassella Stella Retica DOCG

This Riserva offers the excitement of an incorruptible youth that time cannot diminish.
Long aging adds complexity without changing the typical freshness. Immediately fulfilling to the nose with an elegant bouquet of roses, cherry and cranberry, its garnet colour - of rare brightness - captures you immediately. But it's the fresh taste, rich and persistent, which conquers the enthusiast from the very first sip. Thanks to its versatile young character it can pair well with all regional cuisine from Lombardy. To be served in large glasses at 15°C.
