The excellent production of Brunello di Montalcino is the result of the remarkable devotion of the Sassettis to their land and its fruits and the extraordinary location of their vineyards. Located in the North of Montalcino, the area is highly reputed for producing wines of great complexity and elegance. The pedological characteristics of its terroir gives wines that are a perfect balance of the power and richness of Southern Montalcino with the finesse of the North.

Wine EnthusiastFloral and refined, this opens with alluring scents of violet, iris, perfumed berry, earth and a whiff of pressed powder. The savory, elegant palate offers up juicy wild cherry, raspberry, truffle, anise and white pepper framed in a network of silky tannins. It's already extremely accessible and will offer fine drinking pleasure for the near and mid-term.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine, but it does not reach the gorgeous levels achieved by this estate in the previous 2010 vintage. The bouquet here shows lots of cola and balsam aromas with dried ginger and rosemary oil in front of dark fruit, cherry and plum. Those balsam aromas are indeed the wine's signature feature. This Brunello is smooth and silky in terms of mouthfeel.

Wine SpectatorOffers sweet plum, cherry and licorice flavors, shaded by earth, tobacco and spice accents. Balanced, with the right level of tannins for support. Best from 2017 through 2027. 4,000 cases made.
