2019 Sesta di Sopra Sangiovese IGT Toscana

SKU #1363651

Ettore Spina and his wife, Enrica Bandirola, owners of Sesta di Sopra, planted a new vineyard to Sangiovese in 2005. It has the same Galestro soils as the others, perfect for taming Sangiovese's natural vigor. Unfortunately, in Montalcino all of the Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino vineyards are all registered and controlled, and they aren't allowing any more to be added right now, so the wine that comes from this new vineyard has to be designated an IGT (Indicates Geographic Tipicity).

The Sesta di Sopra Toscana is always one of our Best Values for a direct import. This is a vineyard that is located at the top of the mountain of Montalcino and I have had the privilege to stand in on a few occasions. This 2019 Sangiovese is unadulterated, all stainless steel and always has that Tuscan dusty minerals in it. It does not really vary from year to year and has many followers that buy a case or two every year ( before it sells out) it is sold young and meant to be drunk young. This is exclusive to K & L as Sesta only sells this to us. I think the 2019 has a little higher acidity that it could see the test of time and that's only if you can keep your hands off it. Salute, Mike

What pairs best with some pulled pork and Roadhouse starring the late yet great Patrick Swayze? If this is a question you find yourself asking, then I only have two things to say... one, send me an email, lets be friends, and two declassified Sangiovese from Tuscan pairs perfectly with pulled pork. Great notes of raspberry, followed by well balanced acidity. This wine was a total hit for my movie night recently, and on top of that, it's a pretty fantastic price too. No need to try to impress with a more expensive Rosso Di Moltocino, when this bottle should do the trick. :-)

If you’re looking for that Tuesday night introduction to this property, just something to drink with your mac and cheese, then the 2018 Sesta di Sopra Sangiovese is your wine. This wine comes from the younger vines on this tiny estate. It’s got crunchy, cranberry-like flavors, shows hints of leather, earth, and dried herbs, and has a luscious, supple texture—perfect even for Wednesdays.

The amount of labor and devotion the owners of Sesta di Sopra put into their wines is unbelievable. These are always some of the most exciting wines coming out of Brunello and I'm psyched we have an unclassified one from them for 2018. Raspberry and strawberry dominate the nose, but the palate carries hints of moist earth and leather typical of Montalcino. Lighter in body and style than the Rosso or Brunello, this is a perfect weeknight dinner wine ready to drink now. It shows itself best with food, but can be drunk on its own if open for a day.
Top Value!
