Livio Sassetti

"One of the greatest of all Brunelli hails from the tiny Pertimali estate, nestled on a slope in the prime Montosoli cru to the northeast of Montalcino, where the Sassetti family has produced wine and olive oil for more than a century. The Montosoli hill is historically reputed for wines that are a perfect balance of the power of southern Montalcino with the finesse of the north. Where most producers own properties in both zones and blend to achieve that balance, in Montosoli, nature does all of the work. In the vineyard and in the cellar, father Livio and his two sons combine the best of both innovation and tradition, taking advantage of modern equipment and winemaking but also observing natural phenomena such as the phases of the moon. The result is wines with rich, deep, and often exotically perfumed fruit, more akin to the style of Burgundy. In addition to Brunello and Rosso, Pertimali also produces the lush Super-Tuscan Vigna Fili di Seta a barrique-aged blend of 60% Sangiovese and 40% Cabernet. Beginning with the 1997 Brunello di Montalcino, the label now emphasizes the proprietor's name, Livio Sassetti, rather than the estate name, Pertimali. "
