Thematic Tasting Brunello 1

BACKDROP

A short while ago our friend flew into Kyiv from San Francisco for a short stay. He doesn’t visit very often so this was a special occasion and, thus, called for special tastings. We settled on Brunello and Barolo as the themes.

2011 Pertimali Rosso di Montalcino

September 17, 2014

Name:Rosso di Montalcino
Vintage:2011
Type:Red Wine
Varietal:Sangiovese
Producer:Pertimali
Region:Italy / Toscana / Montalcino
Alcohol:n/a

Quite closed (might be the bottle shock). Deeper, darker, woodier and earthier version of the Rosso. Weight matches the nose and taste. Would be fair to retry it after it had some rest from the road.

1997 Pertimali Sassetti Livio Brunello Di Montalcino

September 16, 2014

Name:Sassetti Livio Brunello Di Montalcino
Vintage:1997
Type:Red Wine
Varietal:Sangiovese
Producer:Pertimali
Region:Italy / Toscana / Montalcino
Alcohol:n/a

This was probably the best bottle of Brunello from the hot ’97 vintage I had. Definitely the best Pertimali bottle on my memory. I recon a lucky combination of a very good bottle, proper storage and opened at the right time. Love it when I get lucky like that:)
