Shows meat and blackberry on the nose, with hints of rose perfume. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, rich and flavorful finish. Love the cocoa, berry and light vanilla bean aftertaste. This is always classic in an outstanding year. Best from 2010 through 2015. 1,500 cases made.
We preferred Altesino’s base Brunello to its cru selection from the estate’s special 10-acre vineyard—but only by the smallest of margins. Montosoli is a tremendous wine with impressive intensity and staying power that takes shape as cherry, tobacco, spice and bursting blueberry. Drink from 2010 through 2020.
Located within the historic walls of Palazzo Altesi in the heart of Southern Tuscany, Altesino is a global leader in innovative winemaking focusing on Sangiovese. The prestigious Brunello di Montalcino producer’s estate covers approximately 80 hectares. In 1975, they launched the introduction of the “Cru” in the Montalcino region and now have 44 hectares of vineyards sub-divided into “Crus” of Altesino— Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Macina, Pianezzine, and Montosoli. With its 1985 vintage, Altesino pioneered the concept of Brunello futures—wine purchased before its release.
Altesino takes pride in striving for nothing less than producing high quality wines during each stage of production. Aside from being a top producer of Brunello, their portfolio extends to modern wines including Alte d’Altesi, Palazzo Altesi and Rosso di Altesino.
