This parcel of wine and spirits was brought to us by a long-time aficionado, who began collecting wine in 1981. His interest in collecting began during his career, where every successful business closure was celebrated with fine wine. His wines and spirits were purchased through the SAQ, LCBO, and US independent retailers, and were stored in his temperature and humidity-controlled home cellar before coming to auction.
Producer notes- Sassetti Livio Pertimali is an Italian wine producer based in Montalcino, Tuscany, particularly known for its Brunello wines. Livio Sassetti was one of the founders of the Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino in 1967. The business has remained family owned and operated for three generations. The Podere Pertimali has 16 hectares (40 acres) of vineyards on the Montosoli hill, north of Montalcino. Sassetti makes produces three Brunellos- a generic wine and a Riserva, plus a Rosso di Montalcino. As well as the more traditional wines, there is an IGT Toscana wine, Fili di Seta, which is a Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon blend. In 1999, the family purchased the La Querciolina property within the Montecucco DOC on the Tuscan coast. Sassetti Livio Pertimali produces a varietal Sangiovese from that appellation, as well as a Maremma Toscana red wine named Istriciaia, a blend of Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo. In addition, Sassetti's portfolio includes a Prosecco Superiore Brut and a Prosecco Rosé.
