2014 Rosso di Montalcino Sesti - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $39.00

Sesti’s recently arrived 2014 reds are absolute marvels—testaments to what can be achieved when working rigorously in a challenging vintage. Often the problem in Tuscany is excessive heat. This vintage brought weather patterns that tested the growers with storms and cooler-than-normal temperatures. The Sestis turned the trouble into an advantage, producing wonderfully detailed, precise, bright, invigorating Sangioveses that are irresistibly fresh, aromatic, and thirst-quenching. The Rosso is, as usual, a significant step up in weight and structure from the downright quaffable Monteleccio, yet it gives us a delightfully versatile Sangiovese that will be a lot of fun this summer with a slight chill for outdoor barbecues. –Dixon Brooke
