Grangiovese, Sesti, 2019

£15.95

By law, a Brunello cannot be sold until the beginning of the fifth year after the vintage. Now, that ties up quite a lot of cash-flow, always the bane of a winegrower’s life. So, the creation of an early-bottled, early-drinking style of Sangiovese is not just a boon, almost a necessity.

 

Matthew Jukes, Wine Journalist:

"This 2019 vintage landed in the UK a few weeks ago, but (bloody) Brexit has meant that it is only just making its way onto the Decorum website. Grangiovese is made from younger Brunello di Montalcino vines and other random parcels which don’t make the cut for his Grand Vin (which has a £60+ price tag).  I am certain that this wine is not 1/3 as tasty as Sesti’s Brunello and, if I am being totally honest about the flavour of this extraordinary 2019 vintage, I wouldn’t be surprised if this wine is dropped very soon because the fruit is every bit as lusty as I would expect for its inclusion in the Brunello (or at least the stunning Rosso from this estate)!  Is this the last Grangiovese?  We will find out next year, but you don’t want to miss this boat!"

Decorum says

Sesti, Castello di Argiano

One could use the word ‘serendipitous’ in wine ad infinitum, but it definitely works well with regard to Decorum and Sesti. In late 1999, we needed to buy wine as we endeavoured to get the business off the ground, we required bottles to sell; meanwhile, Giugi Sesti had his first Brunello vintage, the 1995, about to come to the market in January 2000. It was a perfect match for both parties.
