SKU #1552468 100 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Crazy aromas of dried lemon, sea salt and cherry and delicate rose petal. Full body, ripe fruit with amazing acid tannin structure. It works from the inside out with your palate showing an amazing center palate and bright acidity and tannin structure. Goes on for minute. Redefines Brunello. Drink now but better in five years. The greatest wine ever from here. Inner quote mark (12/2014)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark I am absolutely enthusiastic about Sassetti Livio Pertimali's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino. Breathe deep into the glass and this wine awards you a beautiful sensorial experience that brings you immediately to varietal tones of pressed cherry, dried blackberry, spice and tobacco. The most compelling notes however are those polished mineral tones of crushed granite and pencil shaving that add sharpness and focus. This is not a timid Brunello and you can taste the sheer power and the quality of the fruit on hand. The mouthfeel is polished and smooth with fine and exact textural richness. Bravo! (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

96 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The Sassetti family grows the fruit for Pertimali on their northwest-facing vineyards on the Montosoli hill, in Brunello’s northern sector. This 2010 offers lifted floral aromas characteristic of that terroir. Fine tannins disperse through the saturated fruit flavors of red plum and baked cherry, the fruit fleshing out and revealing notes of anise, mint and tobacco, with a streak of graphite adding to the textural richness. The wine shows great balance, freshness and persistence, and promises long cellaring potential. Inner quote mark (12/2015)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has depth and complexity, from the cherry and menthol notes to the earth and mineral elements. Tightly wound, with a core of sweet fruit offsetting the burly tannins. This red lingers on the finish, showing fine equilibrium and the potential to develop. Best from 2019 through 2035. (Web-2015) Inner quote mark
