Livio Sassetti Pertimali Brunello Di Montalcino 2012 Livio Sassetti Pertimali Brunello Di Montalcino 2012

From a cooler site in the northern part of the zone, on nicely sloped vineyards facing southeast, sparing them the most intense sunshine of the day.  Farming is ultra old-school – all organic, low yields, hand harvesting – as is the winemaking – crush, ferment, aged 3 years in large, neutral, oak casks.  The result is a wine that’s at once powerful and elegant.  The fruit is very fresh and vibrant now and will stay that way as it gets darker and richer over the next few years.  There’s plenty of structure and masses of tannins, but they are supremely ripe tannins that dissolve easily on your palate (and in your cellar).  Fun to taste now, better in 2019, and best from 2020-2032.

"Complex aromas of dried figs, dark fruits and hints of walnuts and dried meat. Full body, dense and polished palate. Velvety and poised tannins and a flavorful finish. Yet always refined and beautiful. You want to drink it now and can, but it has a beautiful future."  James Suckling 98 points
