The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino from Sesti pulls you close to the glass, with a display of woodland herbs and strawberries backed by hints of cedar and stone dust. It’s silky and pliant, complemented by bright red fruits and cooling acidity, as inner violet and lavender tones add further depth. Energy remains high through the juicy finale, even as round tannins slowly dry out the expression. This is very nicely balanced and so giving already that it will be hard to keep our hands off long enough to watch it fully mature.

From the Castello di Argiano, the Sesti 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a soft and nicely textured disposition. This wine has a lovely way about it, not showing too much power or tannins that are too firm. You smell the dark ripeness of the fruit and some of the spice that comes from slow aging in large oak casks. Balanced acidity and tart fruit flavors appear on the close. Sesti has produced exactly 17,646 bottles to be released in February of next year.
