    91Sesti Rosso di Montalcino (Red)

    Surprisingly big, jammy, ripe fruit on the nose opens out to opulent redcurrant fruit on the palate, coupled with zesty fresh acidity and menthol, eucalyptus, herbal and delicate cherry notes. Some pretty nutty depth coming from the oak supports the freshness with well balanced tannins and some deeper note of dark chocolate emerging later. Nice complexity, well-balanced, and recognisably Sangiovese aromatically and structurally - especially the fine lacy acidity.
