2010 Pertimali (Livio Sassetti) Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese

My second favourite 2010 Brunello to this date. Great structure with soft yet grand tannin, fantastic integration of acidity, texture of velvet, depth of multi-layered glazes of red fruit and vegetal elements, long finish. Superb value!

    I totally agree. With a region hitting its peak in a vintage like 2010, you can't go wrong with any reputable producers, so might as well spend less than more....it is in the challenging vintages that the top top houses will get you something extraordinary!

    That being said, I still find Poggio Di Sotto of excellent value with that little extra to put it on top of many other solid producers, into the same league as Biondi Santi and Soldera for a fraction of its price!

Incredibly dense and deep nose, as if looking into a deep deep sea. Sweet ripe fruit packed densely in an incredible structure that sinks infinitely into my palate....alcohol is well masked and acidity balanced it out nicely after hours of decanting. deep black and blue fruits with herbs like anise, pepper, tarragon among others....a monster with decades of aging potential.
