Sesta di Sopra Rosso di Montalcino 2017


Sesta di Sopra is a tiny estate in Brunello di Montalcino who has been making fantastic wine for around 25 years. Proprietors Ettore and Enrica Spina bought the estate and replanted the vineyards in the ‘80s.

They picked a very special spot, within the designated cru of Sesta, an area that Italian critic Ian D’Agata has likened to a Grand Cru. Makes sense, the vines are planted at elevation, some of the highest points in Brunello. They are rooted in calcareous soil and in close proximity to the Orcia River, which brings a cooling influence to what is a normally a very hot part of southern Tuscany. The elevation, mineral soil and big swings in day and night temperatures produce powerful wines yet an uncommon degree of elegance.

The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino is seductive and flashy with pretty aromatics, great fruit and a long, minerally finish. It’s perfect with anything  off the grill this summer.

90+ Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The folks at Sesta di Sopra are releasing this wine later than usual. The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is a terrific expression that acts and tastes like a full-fledged Brunello. The wine opens slowly in the glass, revealing budding complexity as it does. It shows bright berry intensity with grilled herb, pressed violet and potting soil. The mid-weight finish is elegant and tight.
