Sesti Phenomena Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2016
Castello di Argiano is located in a unique micro-climate in the southern part of Montalcino, surrounded by forests and is where Giuseppe Sesti, alongside his daughter Elisa, produce elegant expressions of Brunello with a distinct floral note. The wines always drink beautifully on release, but, if you can resist them, they will age quite wonderfully in your cellar for a decade or more. The Sesti Phenomena Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is sourced from Sangiovese vines that are now well over 20 years old. Undergoing fifty-one months of élevage in 30-hectoliter oak botti and a further year of bottle ageing prior to release the wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined. "Sesti’s Riserva is lively, persistent and, quite simply, stunning. Scents of bergamot blossoms, orange peel and cardamom emerge slowly. Smooth, round and plummy on the entry, this gains tension as it clutches the palate with an irony grip. Depth and substance are articulated by persimmon, prickly pear and tamarind nuances."
97 points, Michaela Morris, Decanter

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this.
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!
