Livio Sassetti Pertimali Rosso di Montalcino 2019
The Sassetti family has been producing wine for more than a century in northeast Montalcino. The wines are the perfect balance between the fruit-forward wines of southern Montalcino and the dense, mineral wines of the north.
VM93: Rosy florals and crushed stone give way to bright cherry and hints of animal musk as the 2019 Rosso di Montalcino unfolds in the glass. There’s so much depth of primary fruit, nearly velvety in texture, yet perfectly lifted by bright acidity, turning quite perfumed toward the close. Notions of black raspberry preserves and spice linger unbelievably long, as this tapers off with incredible freshness. This is a killer Rosso from Livio Sassetti.
