The Sassetti Pertamali vineyards are located in the Montosoli hills, north of Montalcino, a particularly well known area for the cultivation of Sangiovese Grosso. The soils have a clay sublayer with a sandy topsoil layer. Training systems are spurred cordon. Grapes are gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature of 28-29°C and the maceration last for 10-12 days.
The persuasive charm and attentive embrace of the Sassetti family lures one to the vineyards, cellar and people who have farmed some of Montalcino’s finest vineyards for over a century. Four generations of the Sassetti family have made wine in Montalcino. Livio worked the historic property through the late 1970s, then purchased the 16 hectare vineyard of the now–famous Podere Pertimali. The Podere is in the Montosoli area, north of Montalcino, a particularly well-known area for the cultivation of the Sangiovese grape. Faithful to the teachings of the family, Livio and Lorenzo have over time renewed and expanded the vineyards, preserving the genetic heritage of the old vines and preserving the primigenie characteristics.
The wine is full-bodied, complex, elegant and well balanced, intense and refined fragrances with ripe fruit, violets, spices and minerality, with a long finish. Pair with red meats and homemade pasta.
