Livio Sassetti Description

Silky, rich red color. Wild berry, dark cherry and complex floral aromas. The definition of elegance in the glass and on the palate, the wine is refined with a silk-like texture and smooth, integrated tannins.

James Suckling: 94/100 Points

Black cherry and mushroom with some dried flower undertones. Full-bodied with fine velvety tannins and a juicy and succulent finish. The tannins are very polished for a 2017. Try from 2023 onwards.

Wine Advocate: 93/100 Points

The Sassetti Livio Pertimali 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is quite bright and lifted with cherries and fresh fruits that pop from the glass. The primary intensity is radiant in this wine, setting it apart from many of its peers. It covers the palate with mid-weight intensity, nice acidity and silky tannins. The brightness you get here is so attractive now, so I see little reason to wait much longer before pulling this cork.

Wine Spectator: 90/100 Points

An opulent style, this red exhibits cherry, berry, tobacco and oak spice flavors. Though fluid, this is firm, with a dense matrix of dusty tannins flexing on the earthy finish. Best from 2024
