A little earth but this show pretty floral and berry character. Hints of walnuts and meat. Full to medium body, a solid depth of fruit and a flavorful finish. Tangy at the end.

Robert Parker 92
The Tenuta di Sesta 2012 Brunello di Montalcino presents evolved aromas of dried fruit, leather, spice and pipe tobacco. The wine opens to a dark garnet color with reddish colors that resemble brick or terra-cotta. These characteristics give the wine a savory and rugged quality that will appeal to those who love the tastes and flavors of aged Sangiovese. Despite the wine's untamed personality, it does offer subdued finesse in the mouth. This wine gives you the typicity of Sangiovese as well as the elegance of an aged Italian classic.

Good deep red. Captivating, nuanced nose offers red cherry, blood orange, roast coffee, underbrush, and licorice. Sweet and subtle, with wonderful inner-mouth perfume to the slightly balsamic flavors of menthol, dried herbs and spices. Showcases noteworthy lift and length on the refined finish.

Wine Enthusiast 90
This opens with tobacco, dark spice, forest floor and leather aromas. The palate offers dried black cherry, licorice and clove flavors, set against tightly wound, taut tannins. It still needs a few years to come together.
