By all standards, Sesti is an impressive venture and Giuseppe Sesti is no ordinary winegrower. In 1991, he decided to plant his vines at Castello di Argiano, which he purchased in the 1970s. The progress he has made in such a short time is staggering, especially considering that his background lies in astronomy and music. Sesti wines are widely acknowledged to be, quite simply, some of the finest that Montalcino has to offer energetic, perfumed and seductive. Now expertly assisted by his daughter Elisa, Giuseppe still imparts the direction of one of the most dynamic estates in Tuscany.
Closed and compact leafy nose. Still very youthful and embryonic. Distinct earthiness with a minerally undertow and ripe cherry. Spectacular balance of ripe, sweet cherry, tangy acidity and really fine, long tannins. Amazing focus and energy. 18.5/20, Walter Speller MW, jancisrobinson.commore
