Everything the Sesti family produces punches above its weight. This is the result of Giuseppe and his daughter Elisa’s experience and also their selection of high-quality fruit for all of their bottlings. Their Rosso di Montalcino, for example, consists of Sangiovese that would qualify for their Brunello di Montalcino. Additionally, they’ve farmed it with organic and biodynamic methods and aged it in massive oak botti. In other words, the grapes are treated with the utmost care and respect from vine to bottle, and it shows in this extremely classy and charming rosso.
A wonderfully food-friendly Sangiovese. Sweet cherry, tangy raspberry, blood orange, thyme, rose petal and exotic spices like nutmeg and star anise.
