Description

Sesti’s new Brunello is seductive, tuned up, honed to perfection, and screaming out of the Brunellian gates. It can be enjoyed immediately or savored for many years (store it in a good cellar). There is nothing quite like a great bottle of Brunello when it is ripe for the picking.

Tasting Notes

This Sesti Brunello di Montalcino, bottled in February 2014, was tasted in late Jan 2015. Gigi Elisa both pointed out that 2010 was remarkable not just for the quality of the wines but also for the olive oil. Sporting the telltale ‘terra di Argiano’ iron-red ochre color, their incense-rich, soft, dark quinine, liquorice nutmeg perfumed Brunello is incredibly compact and restrained, giving little away still. It has a great presence, combining fleshiness with structure, refined, sleek even, cool quinine flavors, sunny, softly-spoken penetrating. ‘Al dente’ with a wonderful raspberry zip, and profound minerality (the result of ancient sedimentary marine life).
