Deep red. Sweet spices, ripe red cherry and Asian herbs on the vibrant nose. Then very clean and fresh in the mouth, offering raspberry, red cherry and coffee flavors that expand and linger nicely on the suave mouthfeel. There is a captivatingly complex, multilayered quality to this very deep, balanced, fleshy wine. One of the year’s best Brunellos.

Aromas of truffle, new leather, chopped herb, woodland berry and tobacco are at the forefront. The juicy medium-bodied palate delivers succulent Marasca cherry, cranberry, star anise and chopped herb alongside taut polished tannins. It's well balanced, with bright acidity and a savory finish. Drink 2020–2028.

Located at Castello di Argiano, Sesti produces classic wines from a slightly warmer corner of the Montalcino appellation. However, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino does a great job of capturing the light and delicate side of this vintage. It does so because of the plump and bright quality of fruit at its core. Aged in botte grande for 39 months, the wine shows a tight and streamlined structure that is backed by a firm but integrated tannic backbone. This wine is showing nicely now and should evolve over the next decade.
