Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Sesti Grangiovese

Sesti Grangiovese 2018

Tuscany, ItalyThe Sesti family uses the Sangiovese grapes that don't go into their Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino for this earlier-to-drink medium bodied red. The wine spends one year in medium-sized oak barrels. Savoury black cherry, salted herbs, worked leather are lifted across a bright palate, framed by subtle wood, and finishing with a lingering minerality and toasty spice. Fantastic structure and harmony in this baby Brunello; drinking beautifully now, and great value.Tasted: 14 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 28.95 consignment Producer: SestiDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
