The family of Livio Sassetti produces wine in Montalcino for over three generations. The Podere Pertimali and its 16 hectares of vineyards are located in the Montosoli area, north of Montalcino, a particularly well-known area for the cultivation of the Sangiovese. Faithful to the teachings of his family Livio has over time renewed and expanded the vineyards, preserving the genetic heritage of the old vines and preserving the primigenie characteristics. In 1967, Livio was among the founders of the Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino and in 1968 he built a terracotta wall in his cellar to preserve the old vintages of the wines produced by the family, the company’s historical memory. Today, the collection consists of almost 1000 bottles, including one that could be termed ‘the great-granddaughter’ of current productions, a bottle dated 1915. In 1999 the Sassetti family acquired a company in Maremma, La Querciolina, within the Montecucco DOC. Thanks to the great passion and experience, vineyards abandoned are transformed into vineyards capable of producing Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo of the highest quality.
