Sassetti Livio Pertimali

For over a century the Sassetti family has farmed some of Montalcino’s finest vineyards. The Pertimali estate is one of the region’s oldest and most respected wineries. The property, with its 16 hectares of vineyards, is nestled on a slope in the Montosoli hill, North of Montalcino, reputed one of the most favourable terroirs for Sangiovese.

Today the estate is managed by Lorenzo Sassetti, Livio’s son, fourth generation family member and acclaimed winemaker, that is passionately upholding the family name and reputation with the help of his wife Sabina.

Lorenzo’s aim is to hand-craft outstanding wines of great character, balance and elegance with an uncompromising commitment to quality, combining modern winemaking techniques to his family time-honoured traditions. He has developed a distinctive style resulting in well balanced and round textured wines, recognized as some of the finest of the region and among the greatest of Montalcino.

Moved by a strong interest in winemaking he decided to approach different wine styles acquiring two properties in Italy’s finest wine-producing areas. La Querciolina, in Tuscan Maremma, within the Montecucco appellation, a land with the potential to produce exceptionally fine wines and Colle Argento in Northern Italy in the Valdobbiadene Prosecco area.

All of Lorenzo’s wines have deep roots in their respective terroirs, showcasing his willingness to preserve their traditional features.
