2001 Livio Sassetti Brunello di Montalcino "Pertimali" Riserva

SKU #1071282 95 points Vinous

 Pertimali’s 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a poignant reminder of a time in the estate’s history when the wines were consistently brilliant. Dusty red cherries, tobacco, Mediterranean herbs and cedar lift from the glass in a super-classic Brunello that shows just how exciting Sangiovese can be in Montalcino. Sadly, the Pertimali wines are rarely this compelling today. (AG)  (12/2013)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep red-ruby. Multifaceted nose offers currant, coffee, flowers, tobacco, licorice and animal fur, along with an elegant mineral quality. Sweet, lush, and broad, but with firm acids giving the wine an impossibly light touch. Conveys an almost saline sense of extract. Wonderfully broad, dry and long on the finish, with suave tannins and captivating nuances of leather, tobacco, leather, earth and minerals. (ST)  (8/2006)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Floral and berry character, with hints of cherry. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and lots of sweet, ripe cherry flavors. Best after 2009. (JS)  (4/2006)
