Product Overview

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"The Sassetti Livio Pertimali 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is quite bright and lifted with cherries and fresh fruits that pop from the glass. The primary intensity is radiant in this wine, setting it apart from many of its peers. It covers the palate with mid-weight intensity, nice acidity and silky tannins. The brightness you get here is so attractive now, so I see little reason to wait much longer before pulling this cork. This is a 38,000-bottle release." -ML, 2/17/22

93 Points - Vinous
"The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino makes itself known with a burst of dusty black raspberries, mentholated herbs, crushed ashen stone and dark flowery undergrowth. Silky-smooth and round in feel, it impresses with a cooling wave of mint-infused wild berry fruits mixed with balsamic spices and wood-smoked salts. While the 2017 doesn’t have the weight and density you’d expect from such a young Pertimali, yet it makes up for it with grace and purity, leaving a light coating of tannins and minerals to mingle throughout the finale. In order to uphold their standards of quality, production was down by a whopping 50%." -EG, Nov/2021

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Floral aromas of violet mingle with underbrush, plum and a whiff of new leather. Full-bodied and enveloping, the concentrated palate offers fleshy black cherry, orange zest and ground clove before a licorice close. It's already rather accessible, with velvety if slightly drying tannins. Drink 2023–2029." -KO, 4/1/22

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"An opulent style, this red exhibits cherry, berry, tobacco and oak spice flavors. Though fluid, this is firm, with a dense matrix of dusty tannins flexing on the earthy finish. Best from 2024 through 2039. 3,166 cases made, 1,250 cases imported." -BS, 6/30/22
