Winery Notes:
Pertimali di Livo Sassetti is considered among the greatest of all Brunello di Montalcino wines. Unusual for the zone, a Pertimali Brunello is almost Burgundian in style - in youth the wines can be somewhat unforthcoming, but as they mature they unfold beautifully. This can be at least partly attributed to the Montosoli hill on which the estate's vineyards are sited; the cru is famous for producing wines that are a perfect balance of the power and richness of southern Montalcino with the finesse of the north. The wine is characterized by seductive fragrance of violets, blackberry and cherry fruits, and spice, with a lengthy, fascinating palate. A staple in any Italian wine lover's collection vintage-in and vintage-out.
