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
