Made from Yamadanishiki rice, considered the most prestigious for sake production, this beverage is crafted from rice grains polished to an incredible 45% of their original volume. This meticulous approach creates a rich and diverse aromatic palette, with distinct notes of pear, grape, pineapple, apricot and watermelon, as well as subtle nuances of chestnut and puffed rice.
This rich, structured and powerful sake can be enjoyed chilled as an aperitif or as an ideal accompaniment to a variety of dishes, including raw fish and even cheeses. Thanks to its exceptional qualities and complex taste, Dassai DEX 45 offers a balanced, nuanced sensory experience.
The tradition of fermentation, ancient and respected for centuries in Japan, is at the heart of the design of this sake. The fermentation process, aided by the use of the microscopic koji fungus, is a crucial element in the making of sake, and in the creation of exosomes, the elements derived from fermentation. This ancestral technique, praised for its benefits to human health, is celebrated through Dassai DEX 45, highlighting the virtues of fermentation for physical and mental well-being.
Dassai DEX 45 Sake embodies the perfect blend of tradition and modernity, fusing the age-old foundations of fermentation with contemporary advances.
