Located at Castello di Argiano, Sesti produces classic wines from a slightly warmer corner of the Montalcino appellation. However, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino does a great job of capturing the light and delicate side of this vintage. It does so because of the plump and bright quality of fruit at its core. Aged in botte grande for 39 months, the wine shows a tight and streamlined structure that is backed by a firm but integrated tannic backbone. This wine is showing nicely now and should evolve over the next decade.

Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will age well...more
