Sesta di Sopra Rosso di Montalcino - Tuscany, Italy
Varietals: 100% Sangiovese
This 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.
Sesta di Sopra is a 44-hectare winery located in the south of Montalcino 4 km from Castelnuovo dell'Abate.It was purchased in 1980. After having restored the house, almost certainly an ancient watchtower, two hectares of olive-grove were recovered, followed by the installation of a first vineyard and subsequently by a second one for a total of 2.8 hectares. The Winery has a perfect position for soil composition and microclimate. The careful family management has given particular importance to the planting of the vineyards, in order to follow the most modern viticultural techniques.
