Pertimali di Livio Sassetti Brunello di Montalcino 2004
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Pertimali di Livio Sassetti|
Candied plum notes, with hints of flowers and mushroom, follow through to a full-bodied palate, with very soft, juicy tannins and lightly grilled meat, berry and fresh shiitake mushroom flavors. A decadent style. Best from 2010 through 2015. 1,800 cases made.
Pertimali's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino offers up floral red fruits, spices, leather and earthiness in a surprisingly medium-bodied style for this property. The wine possesses lovely length and refined, understated finish. The estate's Brunello is quite open and accessible at this stage, and also more forward in its aromas and flavors than many other wines in this vintage, which suggests it is best enjoyed on the young side. Pertimali's Brunello is one of the handful of wines that I expected more from in 2004. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.
