October 2017—Our 45th Anniversary!
Sesti’s oil pours out a bright, deep green, bursting with the fruit and flavor of their sustainably farmed Corregiolo, Leccino, and Moraiolo olives from their farm south of Montalcino. You won’t believe the vibrancy and pure deliciousness of this Tuscan beauty. The Sestis find its flavors resemble artichokes, almonds, pepper, and celery. You will be happy that you have a full-size bottle and you will want to pour it all over everything in sight: it is as essential to your kitchen as wine. –Dixon Brooke
Giuseppe Sesti didn’t initially choose a career in wine. Instead, he was inspired to study music, art, and astronomy, the latter becoming his profession. He met his future wife in Wales while writing his first book, and in 1975 moved to Tuscany, purchasing the abandoned castle of Argiano, slowly restoring the breathtaking estate later planting his vineyards around the castle. In 1999 the Sesti’s daughter, Elisa, joined the estate full time, becoming a partner in all aspects of production. The Sesti lineup includes a white Sauvignon and a Rosato, but their Brunello, Brunello Riserva, and Rosso di Montalcino provide traditional expressions of the appellation, robust and powerful yet refreshing, with great aging potential.
