90 points "Back up the truck, this year Ettore Spina, Sesta di Sopra's owner/winemaker studied up a little bit, asked some questions and decided to change the winemaking on his Rosso di Montalcino. He added a brief stay on the lees with some batonage and the briefest of passages in barrique and "Holy Wow"! If you liked the Sesta di Sopra Rosso before....this Rosso will just knock you over. So complex, so much spice, earth and oodles of the gorgeous 2007 fruit we were just stunned. While exceedingly drinkable now it has an ability to easily age another 5-10 years." Best 2009-2012
