Sesti Monteleccio, Tuscany, Italy
From one of Montalcino’s top producers, the only difference between this wine & his top Brunello is the length of ageing. Ripe cherry and raspberry fruit with great concentration. If you like Brunello di Montalcino but don’t like the price tag, give this a go.
Giuseppe Sesti makes wines in the stunning Monteleccio and Montalcino region of Tuscany. An astronomer by trade, he has a healthy respect for lunar cycles and their effect on grape growing. As such, he farms biodynamically as well as organically. A fantastic grower indeed.
