The area of ​​Sassella, worthy of particular interest, is very steep, well-ventilated and sunny. The tiny vineyard plots are literally torn from the rock. In the heart of Sassella there is the vineyard called "Paradise"; walking through these terraces there is the feeling of being in a very particular and almost magical environment; thanks to it you can understand its name.
The hot confiscated by the rock during the day is given way to the surrounding grapes at sunset, which, thanks to this fact, give a wine rich in aromas, full bodied and with plenty of soft and delicate tannins.
