"Floral and refined, this opens with alluring scents of violet, iris, perfumed berry, earth and a whiff of pressed powder. The savory, elegant palate offers up juicy wild cherry, raspberry, truffle, anise and white pepper framed in a network of silky tannins. It's already extremely accessible and will offer fine drinking pleasure for the near and mid-term."

"The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine, but it does not reach the gorgeous levels achieved by this estate in the previous 2010 vintage. The bouquet here shows lots of cola and balsam aromas with dried ginger and rosemary oil in front of dark fruit, cherry and plum. Those balsam aromas are indeed the wine's signature feature. This Brunello is smooth and silky in terms of mouthfeel."

"A pretty, silky red with plum and berry character. Chocolate. Medium to full body, delicious finish. Lots of sweet-cherry center palate. Drink now."
"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
