"Vines are sustainably farmed, the equivalent of lutte raisonnee in France. South-facing vineyards at 350m altitude. Spurred Cordon training. Vinification in stainless steel for all wines. 5,300 vines per hectare. Yield: 8 metric tons per hectare. Eighteen months of elevage in 30-hectoliter oak botti. Unfiltered. Two months of bottle aging before release." -Importer
"While helping out at neighboring estates Giugi observed that simplicity and careful attention were the most important factors in producing great wines, while chemical intervention skewed their delicate balance; so he determined to make entirely natural wines right from the start. He even took a pioneering extra step by applying his prodigious knowledge of the moon's influence on living things to his vineyard management and winemaking."
"Today the family continues this thoroughly eco-friendly philosophy (although no official certification currently meets their personal standards), and Elisa's primary concern is the materia prima, or raw material, that goes into the wine. The Sesti lineup includes a white Sauvignon and a Sangiovese Rosato born directly of necessity, since the family wanted something light and cooling to drink under the hot summer sun; they were forced to increase production when visiting friends and clients tried these wines and started placing orders. But their basic trio - the Brunello, Brunello Riserva 'Phenomena,' and Rosso di Montalcino- provides traditional expressions of the appellation, robust and powerful yet refreshing, with great aging potential in the Brunellos." -Importer
