As part of our annual pilgrimage to Italy last year, we visited Fabio’s new winery just outside the village of Montalcino and tasted many a barrel sample with his winemaker. ONE, in particular, was raised 100% in amphora – 6-8 months, in fact, from grapes grown on the warmer side of the appellation - Castelnuovo dell'Abate. Fermented with indigenous yeasts, this is a wonderful expression of sangiovese – pure, mineral, complex and driving with pure red fruits.

We can’t say enough about this rare bottling – Brunello purists and the sangiovese-curious should DEFINITELY grab a few. We added about 120 bottles on with our regular Brunello order... That’s all we could get!

PAIRING IDEAS: Stay simple with a brick-cooked chicken. We like the “airplane” cut (breast and thigh) - just marinate a bit with EVOO and salt, etc. – skin-side down with a heavy pot on top, get a good sear, flip over, do it again. That’s all this pure, zesty wine wants to shine!

MUSIC SUGGESTIONS: Iggy Pop’s “Candy” has been going around in our heads this morning – crank it up!

About the Producer

The Tassi company was founded by Guido Franci who worked as a sharecropper for the Biondi Santi family since he was a young boy in the early 1900s. Guido's other passion was beekeeping and making honey on the property as well. The family ran winery is now in the hands of Fabio Tassi, Guido's grandson, who continues the tradition of winemaking and the selling of honey as well as quality products of the territory. The facility is state of the art with a gravity flow system that limits the use of pumps in a winery. The estate has a state-of-the-art facility, combined with an exceptional hospitality experience and making fabulous wines under the beautiful Tuscany sun.
