Sestadisopra 2015 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
"Deep red-ruby. Almost hypnotic aromas of ripe red cherry, black cherry-cola, incense, violet, dried rose and minerals. Structured and sweet red and darker fruit flavors are graceful and finely etched, picking up savory spice and floral elements with aeration. Perhaps a touch less multifaceted than some other Brunellos from this estate, but brimming with early appeal and enough balance to easily last another fifteen to twenty years in a good cellar." - Ian D'Agata - 95 points
The 2015 vintage for Brunello is one of the most iconic vintages, ever. Sesta di Sopra is truly a little gem, growing only Sangiovese Grosso, traditionally. With only 8 hectares of vineyards, we are so proud to be able to represent this winery in Australia and in our City Cellar. The owners, Ettore and Enrica, both in their 80's have a depth of knowledge, experience and passion that is felt in every sip. Ettore likes to say his wife spoils their vines the same way she does his grandchildren... that he often finds her picking off damanged berries one by one with tweezers in the early morning.
