Sassetti Livio Pertimali is a wine producer based in Montalcino Tuscany known particularly for its Brunello wines. Livio Sassetti was one of the founders of the Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino in 1967. Today the business is managed by his son Lorenzo. All Brunello di Montalcino wine is made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes grown on the slopes around Montalcino, which is a classic Tuscan hilltop village 20 miles (30km) south of Siena. The word Brunello translates roughly as 'little dark one' and is the local vernacular name for Sangiovese Grosso the large-berried form of Sangiovese which grows in the area.

Depths of dark, balsamic-tinged black cherry, plum sauce and autumnal spice make the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino impossible to ignore. This is velvety to the core, nearly opulent in feel, with a dense wave of ripe red fruits complemented by nuances of sweet lavender and tobacco. It leaves the palate clenched with fine tannins and primary concentration, creating a classic sensation that transcends the vintage. Nearly a minute goes by, and hints of cocoa and sweet herbs continue to resonate. Wow! Production at the Pertimali estate was down by 20% due to the spring frost, and the decision was made to place all of the juice usually intended for the Riserva into the straight Brunello, the result being one of the top wines of the vintage.
