    This wine is so hard to describe, it is just seamless perfection. I’ve tasted a lot of Brunello, professionally for more than 30 years, the last decade twice a year or more to Montalcino and I can’t think of one wine I thought that was ever “better” than this wine, it is so complete, so balanced, so flavorful I’m just really sorry there is a limited number of bottles. The Pertimali estate is on the north facing slope of Montalcino called the versante Senese and the flavors that one sees from this zone just jump out at you in this wine. That super complex Marasca cherry aromatics are the high-toned burst you see first, then the subtle earth, tobacco, leather, wild brush aromatics meld with fruit and … you’re hooked right there. The palate shows this vintage’s hallmark signature, that salty, savory, character that seems to bond the wine’s texture to the flavors, so more cherry, earth, spice, but all so well combined … I think I’m tearing up a bit, this wine is so good, you can not miss it! Perfect balance in the finish, all those flavors, aromatics and textures join in unison to create one of the most incredible wine experiences I’ve ever had. Very limited...Unfortunately our scale doesn't go beyond 5...
    Drink from 2016 to 2040
