Sesti Monteleccio 2021
Sesti's Monteleccio is 100% Sangiovese sourced from vineyards at the heart of the Brunello di Montalcino wine region. The bottling is divided from the Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino in the cellar, where Elisa Sesti and her father, Giuseppe, decide which barrels hold the juice best suited for each bottling. Once the composition is decided upon it is aged in medium size oak barrels for 12 months. Derived from the Latin name for Montalcino, Monteleccio is a youthful, elegant expression of the Sesti Estate, whose wines are now widely acknowledged to be some of the finest that Montalcino has to offer. Ripe juicy cherries, rhubarb and a touch of mint, this is immediately accessible and delicious for drinking now.
