The Sassetti family has been producing wine and olive oil north of Montalcino for more than three generations. In 1960 Livio Sassetti bought a house on the steep hill of Montosoli, which included a hut called Pertimali, which gave its name to the winery. Today the owner, who was one of the founding members of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino in 1967, is supported by his sons Lorenzo and Luciano. As agronomists and winemakers of the Azienda, the two brothers give many new impulses to the work in the vineyard and in the cellar.
The estate has 16 hectares of vineyards with a very advantageous south-eastern orientation, twelve of which are dedicated to Brunello production alone. According to the family philosophy, Livio renewed and extended the vineyard hills using the genetic material and the original characteristics of the old vines. According to old tradition, all estate activities are in harmony with the phases of the moon.
In 1968, Livio built a terracotta wall in his cellar to preserve the oldest vintages. Among the more than one thousand exhibits on display is also the "grandmother" The wines of the Azienda Agricola Pertimali Sassetti Livio - this is the name of the winery on its website - are among the most outstanding wines of the Montalcino area. Pertimali is aged for 36 months in Slavonian oak. The products in the range include an extremely long-lasting Brunello, a Brunello Riserva in particularly good years and a Rosso, as well as smaller quantities of Moscadello and IGT wine. "Fili di Seta"A barrique cuvée consisting of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Since 1999 the Sassetti family has also owned the property La Querciolina within the DOC Montecucco in the Maremma. With great passion, she transformed untilled fields into attractively designed vineyards where Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo are now cultivated to the highest standards. This farm is also managed by Lorenzo Sassetti. SUPERIORE.DE
