The captivating allure and warm hospitality of the Sassetti family beckon visitors to explore the vineyards, cellar, and the people behind some of Montalcino’s most exquisite wines, a tradition spanning four generations. Livio, a dedicated member of the family, tended to the historic property until the late 1970s before acquiring the renowned 16-hectare vineyard of Podere Pertimali. Nestled in the esteemed Montosoli area, north of Montalcino, this vineyard is renowned for cultivating the Sangiovese grape. Upholding the family's legacy, Livio and Lorenzo have diligently revitalized and expanded the vineyards, ensuring the preservation of the old vines' genetic heritage and their authentic characteristics, in line with the family's cherished teachings.

 

"Intense aromas of black cherries, lavender and spice, such as nutmeg. Some sandalwood and bark, too. Full-bodied with a solid core of fruit and tannins for the vintage. Rather chewy, suggesting that additional bottle age is needed. Try after 2026."

-James Suckling, 96 points

"Rich with compact and velvety layers, the 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino offers fleshy aromas of fig, black licorice, mocha, and roasted sage. It is full-bodied and displays more freshness and transparency on the palate, although it remains fully ripe, with black cherry, plum, turned soil, and macerated violets. It has full and present ripe tannins, a hint of crushed rock, and a saline, savory finish. With its liqueur-like richness throughout, this is a fantastic expression, but it needs a couple of years in the cellar before drinking over the following 10."

-Jeb Dunnuck, 94 Points
