2004 Pertimali (Livio Sassetti) Brunello di Montalcino

2004 Pertimali (Livio Sassetti) Brunello di Montalcino tonight was the best bottle of wine I have had in years. The nose was insane. Perfumed fruit and flowers. Like hanging your nose into a bottle of perfume. On the palate, this delivered in spades, as well. Plum and berry fruit with herbs and laser focused acidity. Long finish and unbelievably layered. Not a rough edge to be found…all polish, finesse and elegance. When Pertimali is on, it can be a mind boggling wine. Unfortunately, it also has the reputation for pretty severe bottle variation, but this one was as complex as Bordeaux First Growths I have had. I hit the jackpot tonight.

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.
