Wine Spectator 91 points - You might find the 2009 Brunello di Montalcino listed under the brand name “Sassetti” or you might find it listed as “Pertimali.” At any rate, the wine is born from the same estate located in the northern half of the appellation. This expression leans toward evolved aromas of green olive, brown sugar and candied fruit with easy tannins that make for a soft and yielding mouthfeel. This is not an overtly complex Brunello, but it does feel coherent given the warmer context of the vintage. Drink: 2016-2019.

"Rich, with black cherry and blackberry flavors tinged by tobacco and spice accents. Intense and elegant, with fine balance and a long, refined finish. Offers beautifully integrated tannins for the vintage. Drink now through 2023." Bruce Sanderson Wine Spectator 91 points
