2015 LIVIO SASSETTI ROSSO DI MONTALCINO
Ever wonder why Rosso di Montalcino is so much less expensive than Brunello di Montalcino? After all, they’re both produced from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes grown in the Italy’s iconic Montalcino region. While legal requirements dictate that Brunello is aged for two years in oak and 4 months in bottle, they are typically aged for a total of 50 months total before release. Rosso’s are only required to be aged for one year before release, often resulting in a fresher, more vibrant red that can be enjoyed young. A gorgeous example is from Livio Sassetti and I always jump at the chance to taste any wine from an Iconic producer of Brunello. Their Brunello is one of the best in the shop and scored 98 Points and is also a favorite of Robert Parker. Antonio Galloni wrote that Livio Sassetti is “One of Italy’s finest.” At under thirty per bottle, their Rosso is an excellent value.
Absolutely hands-on in every way possible, each individual wine produced by Livio Sassetti is hand-tended by Livio and his two sons. With attention to every detail, their 2015 Rosso is stacked with concentrated red cherries, black plum and intermixed are detailed notes of dried rose petals, violets and spice rack. I strongly recommend securing your case… You’ll be seriously glad you did.
