2014 Rosso di Montalcino

Sesti

2014 Rosso di Montalcino Sesti - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

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

About Tuscany

Perhaps no region is tied to Italy’s reputation as a producer of fine wine as much as Tuscany. Since Etruscan times, viticulture has played a prominent role in this idyllic land of rolling hills, and the Tuscan winemaking tradition remains as strong as ever today. With a favorable Mediterranean climate, an undulating topography offering countless altitudes and expositions, and a wealth of poor, well-draining soils, conditions are ideal for crafting high-quality wines. Add to that the rich gastronomical tradition—Tuscany is home to some of the country’s finest game, pastas, salumi, and cheeses—and you have the blueprint for a world-class wine region.

This is Sangiovese territory; in fact, it is arguably the only place in the world where Sangiovese reaches a truly regal expression. In spite of a rocky history with fluctuations in quality, traditionally produced Chianti has reclaimed its status as one of the country’s most reliable, food-friendly reds, while the rapid rise of Brunello di Montalcino shows the grape’s potential for grandiose, opulent reds allying power and finesse. Traditionally-minded growers have stuck to using only indigenous grape varieties and employing techniques like aging in massive wooden casks known as botti, creating wines of terroir that shine at the Tuscan table.

Tuscan wines have had a place in our portfolio since Kermit’s first visit in 1977. While the names of the estates have changed, the spirit of those first unfiltered Chiantis he imported live on through our current selections.
