    Description

    Brunello di Montalcino 2001
    Sesta di Sopra
    Bottle (6)
    "Located in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, Sesta di Sopra pursues a traditional approach to making its Brunello, which was one of the most pleasant discoveries of my tastings of the 2001 vintage. The vines are still young, and there is much to look forward to in future years from this producer. The pretty 2001 Brunello di Montalcino opens with a delicate, expressive nose of flowers and spices. It displays attractive juiciness and length on the palate, with sweet notes of macerated cherries and tobacco supported by a medium bodied frame, with fine, silky tannins and a long, satisfying finish." (91pts Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate #168, Dec 2006)
    Provenance: All wines purchased from local retailers and stored in a temperature controlled cellar.


    Estimate: $260 - $350.
