Rosso di Montalcino DOC – 2019

Region: ITALY - TUSCANY Italy - Veneto

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.

Rosy florals and crushed stone give way to bright cherry and hints of animal musk as the 2019 Rosso di Montalcino unfolds in the glass. There’s so much depth of primary fruit, nearly velvety in texture, yet perfectly lifted by bright acidity, turning quite perfumed toward the close. Notions of black raspberry preserves and spice linger unbelievably long, as this tapers off with incredible freshness. This is a killer Rosso from Livio Sassetti.
