    Sesta di Sopra delivers! I find every year the quality is superb. One of the best Brunello's on the market. With it's amazing aromas of blackberries, sandalwood and dried flowers. Roasted meats are the way to go!

    The nose in Sesta di Sopra’s Brunello is a window into the wine, its’ frank honesty, purity and balance speak to the care and dedication put into this tiny (333 case) production. This vintage has wonderful length and it reminds me of Sesta di Sopra’s first vintage the 1999, it has the freshness and elegance yet underneath this wine is brooding with power, full of spicy, complex, wild cherry fruit, with hints of sage and leather just lying beneath the surface. This is one of the true jewels of Montalcino, Power yet with restraint, dense yet diaphanous, complex yet with a simplistic smile, layered... this is an outstanding wine.

    It has finally arrived. After listening to Greg and Greg talk it up for months. It more than lives up to the hype. It is dark, rich, powerful but not over done. It still possesses some delicacy and nuance. Not quite ready now, but go ahead and dive in!

    Like the Great 2001 & 2004, the 2006 will join its siblings in my cellar and I am very patient with these wines (just found a couple of 2001 rosso’s in my cellar from this producer (yea me!) Classic, The wine boasts excellent length, black cherry, leather and a spicy nose with a little Tuscan dust and minerals on the finish. A must gift for someone who will share with you.
