Tasting Notes

  • DC

    Decanter, February 2019,
    Score: 91

    The Sesti estate extends over 102ha, of which 13ha are dedicated to vines. It's run by father and daughter team Giuseppe and Elisa Sesti, who avoid chemicals and spray only with biodegradable products, and keep sulphite additions in the wines to a minimum. The 2014 spent 12 months less in oak than normal, allowing very lovely fruit to shine through. The tannins are artfully managed without any over-extraction, and the overall frame of the wine is slender, making this best in the near-term. Drink 2019-2025

Producer

Sesti, Castello di Argiano

Castello di Argiano Sesti, owned by father and daughter team Giuseppe and Elisa, is located in Montalcino and their vineyards are grown on the southern slopes of Montalcino (home of some of the greatest Brunello). Giuseppe (‘Giugi’) Sesti, studied fresco painting for 8 years before turning to ancient astronomy and lunisolar calendars. In 1975, he moved to Montalcino to find a quieter life and to explore his other interests including opera. He planted his own vines in 1991 after years of helping neighbouring winemakers with their harvests and wines. Today, he is considered as one of the leading winemakers of the region – a tremendous feat in such a short span of time. Giuseppe and Elisa follow organic and biodynamic approaches both in the vineyards and in the cellar. Fleshy and immediately appealing, his wines might be mistaken for top Right Bank Bordeaux – which is probably not such a bad thing.

Region

Montalcino

Located southwest of Chianti, Montalcino came into its own in the late 1880s when local producer,Biondi-Santi, discovered a Sangiovese clone in his vineyard that was darker in colour than the rest. Its colour, however, was not its only attribute. It produced a wine with notable body, structure and length. He named it ‘brunello' meaning little dark one.This grape's genetic properties along with Montalcino's relatively temperate climate combine tocreate a wine stylistically different to that of more northerly Chianti. They are usually releasedapproximately 5 years after the vintage following 2 to 4 years ageing in wood. The denomination ofRiserva indicates a wine usually produced with more concentrated grapes than the traditional cuvéeand requires a minimum of one additional year of ageing.Today, Montalcino has become one of the most sought after appellations in the Tuscan region.
