2014 Livio Sassetti "Pertimali" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1577197 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Some earthy and savory aromas dominate the dried red cherries initially, then dried wild herbs and quite intense notes of spicy dried red cherries emerge. The palate has a very taut, structured feel with handsomely proportioned tannins carrying gently leathery dried red cherries. Long finish. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Sasseti's 2014 Brunello di Montalcino shows an earthy, almost-animal display of ripe strawberries offset by savory herbs, leather and coffee grinds. On the palate, smooth textures lead into ripe strawberry and cherry fruits, as saline-minerals and tannins slowly saturate beneath an air of pretty florals. It finishes long, sizzling on the senses with a mix of mineral-laden acids and spice, balanced by youthful tannins with lingering red berry and floral tones. I must admit, in a vintage that seemed to be difficult for the entire region, Pertimali really nailed it. This may not be a wine for the ages, but with a few years in the cellar, it should be drinking beautifully. (EG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is a sure-footed and steady wine with mild aromas of wild berry, cherry, spice and tar. Although the wine's intensity is slightly reduced in this vintage, this expression faithfully transmits all the fundamental characteristics associated with aged Sangiovese from beautiful Montalcino. The tannins are mild and integrated and this wine is best suited to near or medium-term consumption. (ML) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pretty cherry, strawberry, almond and earth aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this red. Leather and saline elements add depth as this cruises to a long, minerally aftertaste. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2019)
