Rosso 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, an area particularly renowned for the cultivation of Sangiovese. True to his family's teachings, Livio has over time renewed and expanded the vineyards, preserving the genetic heritage 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 wines produced by the family, the historical memory of the company. Today the collection consists of almost 1000 bottles. In 1999, the Sassetti family acquired a company in Maremma, La Querciolina, within the Montecucco DOC. Thanks to the great passion and experience, abandoned vineyards are transformed into vineyards capable of producing Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo of the highest quality.
