The Livio Sassetti family has been producing wine in the Italian region of Montalcino for over three generations. The Podere Pertimali and its 16 hectares of vineyards are located in the Montosoli region, north of Montalcino, a particularly well-known area for the cultivation of Sangiovese. True to the teachings of his family, Livio has over time renewed and expanded the vineyards, preserving the genetic legacy of the old vines.

The Sangiovese grapes are gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28° - 29°C; a maceration for 10-15 days
and then aging for 36 months in Slavonian oak barrels of 33hl and then a further 6 months of bottle aging.

In the glass, the Livio Sassetti Brunello di Montalcino has an intense ruby red color. The Livio Sassetti Brunello di Montalcino has an ethereal nose with aromas of flowers, cherries, strawberries and shitake mushrooms. We also smell dark fruits of black cherry, blackberry, plum and sweet spices. Elegantly structured with a fresh acidity and elegant, soft, tannins. Firm but certainly not jammy with a great tannin and fruit structure. This takes four to five years to show its true greatness and then a perfect wine for at least a decade.

Vineyard for 2015 Sassetti Livio Pertimali Brunello di Montalcino

The Livio Sassetti family has been producing wine in the Italian region of Montalcino for more than three generations. The Podere Pertimali and its 16 hectares of vineyards are located in the Montosoli region, north of Montalcino, a particularly well-known area for the cultivation of the Sangiovese. True to the teachings of his family, Livio has renewed and expanded the vineyards over time, preserving the genetic legacy of the old vines.

In 1967 Livio was one of the founders of the Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino and in 1968 he built a terracotta wall in his cellar to preserve the old vintages of the family-produced wines, the historical memory of the company. Today the collection consists of almost 1000 bottles. In 1999, the Sassetti family acquired a business in Maremma, La Querciolina, within the Montecucco DOC. Thanks to great passion and experience, abandoned vineyards are transformed into vineyards capable of producing the highest quality Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo.
