Debuting Livio Sassetti Pertimali’s Superb 2015 Brunello--Under $70!
November 5, 2019
A Note from Sergio

Brunello's greatest strength is not its grape (Sangiovese Grosso, a clone known as BBS11 isolated by Clemente Santi in the nineteenth century). It's not the explosion of winemakers (a growth of more than 300% in the last fifty years alone). And it's not the wine's longevity, complexity, or flavor profile (all impressive). It's the astounding range of microclimates in the 3,000 acres of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. North of Montalcino itself, you'll find the subzones of Canalicchio, Pianelli, and Montosoli, and here, the high elevation of the central region begins to taper off and flatten out, forming a kind of plain studded with hills. These subzones have a moderate share in the warm, dry Mediterranean climate and high altitude of their neighbors to the south, but the slight differences in temperature, humidity, and elevation makes wines that own both ripeness and structure.

These traits are embodied in the wines of Livio Sassetti Pertimali, which combine serious aromas and elegance with power and fruit, and these traits are heightened, intensified and powered up in a banner vintage like 2015. Today, I'm delighted to debut Livio Sassetti Pertimali's drop-dead gorgeous 2015 Brunello di Montalcino, a wine that captures its insanely good growing vintage with purity, poise, and power. This 2015 Brunello is muscular but lithe, bursting with sweet fruit but loaded with savory notes, and fresh with acidity but chewy with tannins. You're going to love it. In fact, I'd urge you to buy more than one bottle of this Livio Sassetti Pertimali Brunello because you're going to want to drink it again and again.

Enjoy!

Ripe, rich red and blue berries mingle with savory notes like truffles, tobacco and earth, floral notes of violet petals, and minerally notes like pencil lead in this subtly kaleidoscopic ’15 Brunello from Livio Sassetti Pertimali. 2015 is a benchmark Brunello vintage, and this wine showcases its elegant, chewy tannins, vivid acidity, and sweet fruits with its core of savory minerals and earth. Caressing and textured, this beautifully structured Brunello needs a couple of years in the cellar before true enjoyment, but it will drink for decades to come. Deriving from the estate's southeastern-facing, clay and limestone vineyards on Montosoli hill in Brunello's northern subzone, the biodynamically grown grapes for this Brunello ferment for about two weeks in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for three years in botti, followed by six months in bottle before release. more info
