About Us

Ciao, we are Marta and Federico and Sassopra is our dream come true. We’re from Frascati, south of Rome, a small town with a huge history in winemaking, our vulcanic terroir was first used by the romans for the cultivation of the vine. We found in the biodynamic method the way to renew soil fertility, to increase biodiversity in a context of monoculture, and therefore to bring to the glass a sincere, faithfull and healty expression of our terroir. We have a 5 hectars of Vineyard in the Frascati DOC Superiore area, with Malvasia Puntinata, Malvasia di Candia, Bombino, Bellone, Trebbiano, Sangiovese and Merlot. The vines are from 35 to 45 years old and placed on a little sunny and windy hill from where we can see the most beautiful sunsets on Rome. In the vineyard we have a vegetable garden, Mala and Temu our horses, and our little chicken farm we are very proud of!!! In the cellar we remain faithful to the work we did in the vineyards so we work with spontaneus fermentations, we dont use any oenological shortcuts, no filtering only decanting with waning moon, about the use of SO2 we are around 20mg/l, so our wines are protected but not embalmed. Our vulcanic terroir has very high potassium and sodioum values that give the wines a strong complexity, minerality, flavor, lightness, moderate acidity, salinity and a lot of grit.
