Medium Body, Dry (Sangiovese Grosso). Alc 15%.
Made from the Sangiovese Grosso vine, this is a classic Tuscan wine made by Ettore Spina at his small family estate. Give it time to open up in your glass (ideally decant for 30-60 minutes as well). The length is superb. A rich, round, complex wine with fantastic ageing potential - if you can bear to wait ;-)
Sesta Di Sopra Brunello 2016 Ratings:
88 points Wine Enthusiast - "Balsamic aromas of camphor mingle with rose, new leather and forest floor on this bold red. The brawny, monolithic palate offers dried cherry, orange zest and licorice alongside assertive, rather grainy tannins. You'll also notice the heat of evident alcohol that dominates the finish."

99 Wine Spectator - "Textbook growing season resulted in wines of finesse and elegance, balance and harmony, with mostly red fruit flavors. Ideal weather in September preserved acidity."
As with all our wines, this is lovingly made at a small-production family estate. Note the cute winery logo - an Etruscan symbol depicting the sun, based on a relic found on the grounds of the farm :)
