Sassetti Pertimali

The persuasive charm and attentive embrace of the Sassetti family lures one to the vineyards, cellar and people who have farmed some of Montalcino’s finest vineyards for over a century. Four generations of the Sassetti family have made wine in Montalcino. Livio worked the historic property through the late 1970s, then purchased the 16 hectare vineyard of the now–famous Podere Pertimali. The Podere is in the Montosoli area, north of Montalcino, a particularly well-known area for the cultivation of the Sangiovese grape. Faithful to the teachings of the family,  Livio and Lorenzo have over time renewed and expanded the vineyards, preserving the genetic heritage of the old vines and preserving the primigenie characteristics.

Loads of green-apple and lemon character on the nose and the palate. Full-bodied, fruit and layered. A little denser and fruitier than some. Disgorged in 2017. Drink or hold.

The NV Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Brut wafts up a pretty showing of crushed green apple, ginger and dusty florals. It’s dry and crisp yet with a vivid display of ripe melon and orchard fruits, perfectly contrasted by sharply focused acidity and a vibrant bead of fine bubbles.  2021 – 2023
