This rich red is packed with sweet cherry, plum, tar and licorice aromas and flavors. The tannins are dense, and this is balanced overall, with a lingering finish of sweet fruit and spice. Best from 2015 through 2032. – BS

Really gorgeous and refined. Very silky textured with a plum and sweet tea character. Full body, with super fine tannins and a clean and lightly spicy finish. Delicious now.

This classically styled Brunello di Montalcino stays true to its origins with aromas of floral and spice followed by sweet cherry and dried cranberry. Full-bodied on the palate flavors of forest floor espresso mocha and ripe fruits are framed by a hefty dose of acidity and tannins. The wine is delightful now but give it another five years for even more enjoyment. Drink from 2015-2025. Tasted in New York and at Vinitaly with consistent notes and scores.

Winery

Pertimali (Livio Sassetti)

For over three generations, the Sassetti family has been producing wine in Montalcino. The “Podere Pertimali”, with its 16 hectares of vineyards, is nestled on a slope in the Montosoli hill, north of Montalcino—one of the most favorable terroirs for Sangiovese in the area. Maintaining the family tradition, Livio Sassetti has renovated and extended the vineyards, retaining the genetic material of the original vines and preserving their characteristics.

Livio was among the founders of Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino in 1967. In 1968, he built a terracotta wall in his cellar, to keep the old vintages of the wines produced by his family. Today, this collection counts over 1000 bottles, among which stands out as the ‘grandmother’ of the current production - a bottle from the 1915 vintage!

In 1999, the Sassetti family purchased a property in the Tuscan Maremma, La Querciolina, within the DOC Montecucco. Thanks to their passion and experience, untended fields were nutured into into vineyards which produce Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo of great quality.

Today, both wineries are managed by Lorenzo Sassetti, Livio’s son, who is focused in continuing his family’s winemaking tradition.
