Medium red, with a hint of amber at the edge. Lovely perfumed aromas and flavors of cherry, leather, tobacco and dried flowers. Sweet, precise and high-pitched, with impressive energy giving the wine excellent grip. Conveys an impression of intensity without weight. The rising finish is suave, fresh and very long. Superb sangiovese complexity here, with virtually no sign of the vintage’s heat. A beauty.

Sesti’s 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is an elegant, restrained wine that reveals the essence of Sangiovese in its notes of smoke, tar, mint, black cherries and licorice. A feminine, delicate Brunello, it shows very classic color and weight, with well-integrated tannins and lovely poise. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018.
