Sassaia is born in the heart of Piedmont where hand-picked grapes, natural winemaking, and ancient traditions are intertwined with modern and innovative processing techniques. 
Sassaia was born from the passion of Enrico de Alessandrini, a descendant of a noble Trentino family with Capriata d'Orba roots and the attitude of Pierre Naigeon, fifth-generation producer of Gevrey Chambertin in Burgundy.
The goal is to produce wines that please the modern palate while respecting old-world style.

Albarossa is a variety of Piedmontese grapes, a cross between Chatus (Nebbiolo Dronfield) and Barbera discovered in 1938 by prof. Dalmasso from Turin in search of new varieties that combined the elegance and colour of Nebbiolo with the freshness and drinkability of Barbera. With the Denomination of Controlled Origin (DOC) it has become more widespread and recognised in the last ten years.
