Livio Sassetti Brunello di Montalcino Pertimali 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

"...staggering in its aromatic fireworks and concentrated, long, intense flavors...new saddle leather are added to jammy black fruit characteristics. Opulently-textured, full-bodied, and gorgeously pure...96." WA 10/01. 'Balanced and refined. Very floral, with ripe fruit and a fresh undertone. Full-bodied, with well-polished tannins. A beauty. Still needs time. Best after 2004..92"WS 10/2002

(Release date 1/1/02) Readers should note that with the 1997 Brunello di Montalcino, the label has changed to emphasize the proprietor's name, Livio Sassetti, rather than the estate name, Pertimali...
