Sesta di Sopra Rosso di Montalcino 2018
|Brand||Sesta di Sopra|
Eric Guido, Vinous, November 2020The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino captivates with a beguiling display of mineral-tinged cherry, flowery undergrowth, leather strap and hints of animal musk. It casts silky textures across a medium-bodied frame with polished red/black fruits under an air of inner lavender and violet tones. Round tannins frame the expression nicely, as residual acids make the mouth water for more, tapering off to tart cranberry with a motivating flourish of spiced citrus. The balance here is on point, guaranteeing a number of years of positive evolution in the cellar. That said, the classically-styled 2018 is already so easy to like. Drinking window: 2021 - 2026. 93 points.
Ian D'Agata, Vinous, March 2020: Good full red color. Captivating aromas and flavors of ripe red cherry, savory herbs, and redcurrant jelly are laced with bright licorice and blood orange nuances. An exceptional Rosso, nicely combining richness with vivacity in a remarkably harmonious way. Closes creamy yet refined. One of the top three-four Rossos of the vintage and better than many Brunellos. Drinking window: 2020 - 2024. 93 pts.
