2015 Toscana Rosato

Sesti

2015 Toscana Rosato Sesti - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
The Sesti Rosato is a 100% Sangiovese from grapes picked earlier than their Brunello-destined counterparts. Selected from higher-yielding vines in order to avoid high alcohol, the fruit is de-stemmed without crushing before resting in tank for up to 12 hours and then being delicately pressed. Fermentation proceeds with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, where the wine completes its malolactic fermentation before an unfiltered bottling. The 2015 is refreshing, well-rounded, and elegant with not a single rough edge. Scented of flowers and frutti di bosco, it has a subtle tannin that makes this an excellent rosato for the table. Its mouth-filling texture and earthy nuances also make it a lovely cool-weather rosé, so don't hesitate to savor it year-round.

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.

I want you to realize once and for all: Even the winemaker does not know what aging is going to do to a new vintage; Robert Parker does not know; I do not know. We all make educated (hopefully) guesses about what the future will bring, but guesses they are. And one of the pleasures of a wine cellar is the opportunity it provides for you to witness the evolution of your various selections. Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
