2016 Sesta di Sopra Rosso di Montalcino

SKU #1295589 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The folks at Sesta di Sopra are releasing this wine later than usual. The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino (with 8,400 bottles made) is a terrific expression that acts and tastes like a full-fledged Brunello. The wine opens slowly in the glass, revealing budding complexity as it does. It shows bright berry intensity with grilled herb, pressed violet and potting soil. The mid-weight finish is elegant and tight. (ML) 90+  (2/2019)

If you don’t want to pop for the Brunello right off the top, you should try the Rosso di Montalcino. All Sangiovese, and from one of the region’s best vintages of all time, it is stunningly good. The nose of Sesta di Sopra’s Rosso just jumps out at you. Spicy, complex, with wild cherry fruit, salted plums, and hints of sage and leather, it’s intriguing, seductive, and inviting. On the palate the wine is broad, full-bodied, and rich, yet not heavy. It has an elegance, is supple yet forceful, and it is savory, not fruity. It tastes like you should be having it with a meal, like veal shank or just a big hunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano.
