Ridolfi Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

Lighter-styled Brunello offering a red cherry mint, smoky soft plum and bruised rose petal; lightest pepper, poppyseed.
Vague notes of banana and spun sugar. Tart cherry, raspberry and oregano on the palate, cedar-cigar, grainy tannins and roobios. Good Brunello for the money!

Cerbaia Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

Salvia, dusty, black cherry. Lifted, fine, persistent minerality. Estate is situated just above Pertimali, and the young proprietors work for Sassetti. Pure class, as you’d imagine in such a situation. Fantastic! #cerbaia #rossodimontalcino #sangiovesegrosso — 4 years ago

Val di Suga (Angelini)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Black and red cherry fruit aromas, dried cran and raisin, display a light tangerine, sage, aloe and pepper dust. Sweet tobacco, and spot on measures of cedar and smoke. Dried cherry, pointedly tart raspberry, black cherry, cocoa, coffee, and tarragon round out the palate. Juicy in places; lean on the pyrotechnics. Balanced in a word.

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

A bit more focused and chiseled than the ‘15; also better balanced. Hot dust, grated spice, aged Balsamico. Tannins just short of grippy. Juicy, savory and superfine. Absolutely A-list stuff. #sestadisopra #sangiovesegrosso #montalcino — 4 years ago

Pertimali (Livio Sassetti)

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2006

Smokes 75% of Brunello. This one may be the greatest Rosso di Montalcino I’ve ever tasted. Meat juices, saddle shop, hot dust, herbs, roasted fruits. Fine, soft tannins. Should be perfect for another 5-7 years. #sangiovesegrosso #pertimalisassetti — 4 years ago
