Livio Sassetti Brunello di Montalcino Pertimali 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is seriously dark, rich and intense. Black cherries, underbrush, new leather and licorice all come together in a sensual, powerful expression of Sangiovese. There is surprising depth to the round fruit. Though delicious today, this is one of the few 2005 Brunellos that needs bottle age for some of the tannins to soften. It is a fabulous 2005. There will be no Riserva in 2005 as Sassetti used all of the best fruit for the regular bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023...93" WA 04/10 "A rich and decadent Brunello, with tobacco, berry and coffee character that turns to meat. Full and soft. Best after 2010..93" WS 10/10
