Tasting notes:“Sesterzo” is our top wine and it continues to improve. It’s a single-vineyard wine from the most suitable area of the Orcia Doc, called “zona della Ripa”. It has notes of ripe cherry, dry plum, tobacco and white chocolate with smooth elegant tannins. In the mouth its vibrant acidity appeals to those with a preference for the traditional Tuscan Sangiovese. Although Sesterzo is ready to drink it deserves to be refined in the bottle to achieve its maximum expression. Extended ageing brings out complexity and soft, supple tannins along with delightful fruit and spice that linger on.
