Rocca delle Macie


sasyr… ‘the discovery of another world’ – so states the advertising for this wine.
Some have called it a ‘wine for women’: even if that definition can have numerous (and not fully congruent) interpretations, perhaps – if we think in terms of its ‘otherness’ – more than a ‘wine for women’ we like to refer to it as a ‘Vino Donna’, a wine with a feminine soul. Sasyr is a highly quaffable wine that is fruity and polished on the palate, with no sharp edges; well-rounded, sinuous, and immensely drinkable. Like all great Women, it has character and personality, making for a complete, well-balanced wine. In relation to more ‘masculine’ wines that require specific matches to find a sense of equilibrium at the dinner table, Sasyr is a very versatile proposal that works well with all manner of dishes, but is also very pleasant on its own, accompanied only by some great music.
