Sestosenso Vin Santo Occhio di Pernice Monteregio di Massa Marittima D.O.C 2007

Member Review by Natalia Bidasyuk:

wine sampling, Jan 24, 2013. alc 14%, sug 123 g/l. plum jam, fig, rosebud; tobacco, oak. like drops of Chianti left in the glass. GREAT and rare treat The harvest takes place in early October, ahead of full maturity of all the clusters, to choose the best grapes. The drying is done on mats or, more rarely, on wires hanging in naturally ventilated rooms. The grapes are pressed and the juice, separated from the pomace, is fermented in small sealed barrels. The barrels are kept for at least 3 years in the basement ceiling, where the temperature range between day and night, especially between summer and winter, allows the ‘Eye of Partridge to acquire special aromas. The aging in the bottle lasts about 6 months. Fascinating color almost iridescent. Sometimes amber, dark, impenetrable brown. Then, depending on the angle, quick flashes of ruby and garnet, that remind its origins from black grapes. The nose notes of dried figs and plum jam stand on a balsamic background of great elegance, with hints of cinchona, rhubarb and then cloves and licorice stick … If the nose is elegant, the taste is no less impressive: dark and fruity but also soft, silky and with great persistence. Sipping wine that matches perfectly with jam or chocolate tarts.
