About

93

"A rich, silky red, full of sweet, ripe plum and prune aromas and flavors, but also iron and leather accents. The tannins emerge on the finish, reminding you that this will develop over the next 10 to 15 years. This has fine intensity. Best from 2014 through 2024."

93 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

"Dried fruits on the nose, with an intensity and decadence. Full and chewy, with tannins and ripe fruit. A little raisiny in the end, but impressive. This still needs at least three to four years of bottle age. Better than 2006."

Product Description:

"In northeast Montalcino, the Sassetti family has produced wine for more than a century. On the hill known as Montosoli, Pertimali’s wines are renowned for representing the perfect balance between the fruit-forward wines of southern Montalcino and the dense, structured, mineral wines of the north. In the vineyard and in the cellar, father Livio and his two sons work in observance of time-honored traditions, including hand harvesting, giant oak botte, and spontaneous fermentations, all in accordance with the phases of the moon and organic farming regulations. The wines are rich, deep, and perfumed, reflecting a very genuine style of Sangiovese. In addition to Brunello and Rosso, Pertimali also produces the lush Super-Tuscan “Vigna Fili di Seta”, a barrique-aged blend of 60% Sangiovese and 40% Cabernet. The label, while emphasizing the name of Livio Sassetti, the prioprietor, also bears the estate’s historical name, Pertimali." -Importer
