As early as in XVII century an Italian poet Francesco Redi called the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano “the king of wines”. Pasiteo is born on Caggiole and Graccianello areas of Fassati lands, 70 hectares of vineyards in the heart of Montepulciano hills. The vinification process ends with malolactic fermentation at a controlled temperature, followed by a long aging period of two years in a huge cellar. A part of wine matures in oak barrels of 20-26 hectoliters and another part in small barriques of different capacity and origin. Then the wine is refined in bottle for about six months. It has an intense ruby-red color with violet shine. At nose it has rich, delicate and intense fragrance of mature fruit, acacia and vanilla honey with flowered and spicy flavor of wood. At palate it is complete, rich in forest berries, with a pleasant hints of mature plum and excellent tannins, evidencing noble elegance.

The producer

Fassati is an antique Tuscan winery located in the Chianti area. It was founded in 1913 by Marquis Fassati and named in honour of its founder. From 1925 Fassati winery is a proud holder of the title of “Pope Supplier” given by Prefect of Saint Apostolic Palace. In 1969 the winery, managed by new owners, purchased various vineyards in the best production areas and started to produce Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The wineyards are all numbered and classified, which allows to track and to better understand the vine and its potential. This philosophy is practiced until now in respect of the antique traditions which have marked the territory and Fassati name. The actual ownership counts about 100 hectares of vineyards with a potential that places Fassati among the first five wineries of Montepulciano.
