SESTI

What started as neighbourly help assisting in the nearby vineyards and wineries soon led Giuseppe Sesti to discover his own passion and talent for winemaking, planting his own vines at Castello di Argiano in 1991.

The progress he has made in such a short time is staggering, and the Sesti wines are now widely acknowledged to be quite simply some of the finest that Montalcino has to offer. Having studied astronomy, it is not surprising that many of his winemaking processes follow the lunar cycle. Giuseppe Sesti has succeeded in establishing an extremely impressive international reputation in the world of...

TASTING NOTES

‘2015 was one those years that every winemaker dreams of having at least once in his career. The balanced season with a warm and sunny summer, but with a cool, dry weather during the harvest produced wines that perfectly denotethe seasonal trend. Rarely do we find a perfect balance between the various components of the wine, from the deep...

TASTING NOTES

Arguably the finest expression of Chianti Classico we’ve ever tasted from the estate. This is a ripe yet elegant vintage with an attractive, fleshy concentration and sweet-scented fruit. This depth is lifted by crunchy cherry acidity; tell-tale Sangiovese spice and a streak of grippy minerality add layers of complexity to what is a very complete wine. Drinking very well now...

TASTING NOTES

This is a very attractive and aromatic wine with vibrant blackberry fruit characters mingled with crushed flowers, wild herbs and a bright balsamic note. The palate is elegant and silky textured with a lovely freshness and fine length. A wine which is delicious from release, it also offers incredible value. Anticipated maturity 2016 to 2020.

Sesti Castello di Argiano

Giuseppe Sesti is no ordinary winegrower. His background is astronomy and music rather than wine, but that didn’t stop him taking on the role of winemaker in chief at the 13th century Castello di Argiano, which he acquired in the 1970s.

The moderate microclimate in this southern part of Tuscany helps to create juicy Montalcino wines with rich, dense complexity, while the altitude (350m) helps to maintain its archetypal sour cherry acidity. Quartz mixed with sand and light clay gives the wines an energizing mineral purity. The Sesti wine style is very perfumed with soft, sweet fruit and velvety, seductive tannins.

Sesti Wines

It is not surprising - given Giuseppe’s knowledge of astronomy and astrology - that his winemaking processes follow the lunar cycle. Production is strictly traditional with long maceration and lengthy ageing in botti; up to 60 months for the Sesti Brunello Riserva, around 40 months for the Sesti Brunello and 18 for the Sesti Rosso, followed in all instances by 12 months in bottle.

Top of the range is Sesti Phenomena, whose labels refer to the spectacular astronomical happenings during the year of production. The mainstay of the estate is the Sesti Brunello – a wine that looks and tastes beautifully mature from the moment of release, displaying considerable, expansive depth and perfume. The Rosso is in the same vein, less concentrated but soft and highly drinkable, while Monteleccio is made from the winemaker’s selection of 100% Sangiovese grapes, aged in medium size oak barrels for 12 months. This is a youthful, elegant expression of the estate – juicy, immediately accessible and delicious.

Expertly assisted by his daughter, Elisa, Sesti’s wines are now widely acknowledged to be some of the finest that Montalcino has to offer.
