2004 Pertimali (Livio Sassetti) Brunello di Montalcino

2004 Pertimali (Livio Sassetti) Brunello di Montalcino with homemade Lasagna tonight. Wow. Just wow. This is really blowing me away. Super complex with deep cherry and plum, leather tobacco and oodles of earth and freshness, and a touch of menthol. This is one of my island wines together with Galardi’s Terra di Lavoro and Terre Nere’s wines. It is a profound wine IMO and one that should be in the cellar of any Brunello freak. It has a rustic edge and an ild school profile that hijacks your brain and transports you to a different place. I think I am swooning.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
