The Sorting Table reaches new heights with Brunelli from Montosoli

Posted on September 10, 2019

Napa, Calif.—The Sorting Table, LLC, the Napa-based importer of choice for unparalleled family-owned wines from across the globe, is pleased to share an exciting addition to its portfolio of boutique growers.

Effective immediately, the Sorting Table announces exclusive U.S. import rights to the wines of Sassetti Livio Pertimali, an historic Tuscan family winery rooted in Brunello di Montalcino, with additional properties in the Maremma and the Veneto. The family of Livio Sassetti has produced wine in Montalcino for over three generations, owning 16 hectares of vineyards on the Montosoli hill north of Montalcino, long considered one of the most important vineyard sites in the appellation.

Their Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is lauded as a classically proportioned wine with a definitive style that dances on the palate. In 1999, the Sassetti family acquired property in the Maremma, La Querciolina, within the Montecucco DOC. Recently, they began developing a small property of Glera in the Prosecco DOCG because winemaker Lorenzo Sassetti was interested in making a white wine that required very low sulfites.

All three properties are currently managed by Lorenzo Sassetti and his wife Sabina La Brusco Sassetti who will travel regularly to the U.S. in support their business.

The Sorting Table will import three distinct Brunelli di Montalcino DOCG and Rosso wines as well as Montecucco DOC and Prosecco Superiore Valdobbiadene DOCG. The Sassetti Pertimali wines are currently available in major U.S. cities with wider availability for the holiday season. For more information, please visit

The Sorting Table, LLC, a Napa, California based wine and boutique spirits importer created in 2006, is a champion in searching out grape growers who own and tend their vineyards, use sustainable, organic or biodynamic practices, and are considered exemplary producers in their respective wine regions. The Sorting Table is the premier U.S. importer for many iconic estates from France (Domaine Dujac, Bernard Moreau, Jean-Baptiste Adam, Triennes), Italy (Castello di Ama, Collazzi, Borgoluce, St. Michael-Eppan, Tiberio, Le Monde, Sassetti Pertimali), New Zealand, (Seresin, Momo) and South Africa (Neil Ellis Family of Wines) amongst other artisanal properties.

For over a century the Sassetti family has farmed some of Montalcino’s finest vineyards, and their Pertimali estate is one of the region’s oldest and most respected wineries. The property is nestled on a slope on the Montosoli hill. Lorenzo Sassetti, son of Livio, now makes the wines and manages all three family estates in Montalcino and Montecucco in Tuscany, as well as Colle Argento, Valdobbiadene in the Veneto.
