Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

A bit more focused and chiseled than the ‘15; also better balanced. Hot dust, grated spice, aged Balsamico. Tannins just short of grippy. Juicy, savory and superfine. Absolutely A-list stuff. #sestadisopra #sangiovesegrosso #montalcino — a year ago

Pertimali (Livio Sassetti)

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2006

Smokes 75% of Brunello. This one may be the greatest Rosso di Montalcino I’ve ever tasted. Meat juices, saddle shop, hot dust, herbs, roasted fruits. Fine, soft tannins. Should be perfect for another 5-7 years. #sangiovesegrosso #pertimalisassetti — a year ago

Cerbaia Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

Salvia, dusty, black cherry. Lifted, fine, persistent minerality. Estate is situated just above Pertimali, and the young proprietors work for Sassetti. Pure class, as you’d imagine in such a situation. Fantastic! #cerbaia #rossodimontalcino #sangiovesegrosso — 2 years ago
