Tasting Notes

WA91

The single-vineyard 2003 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli, from one of the region's top sites, is fresher and more vibrant than the regular bottling, with superior balance and finesse. It shows lovely plumpness, clarity and depth in its black cherries, oak, spices and tobacco. This medium to full-bodied wine should drink beautifully over the next decade or so. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018.

WS90

Wonderful purity of blackberry and plum skin with just a hint of lilacs on the nose. Full and silky, with chewy tannins and a long finish. This shows loads of smokey, gamy and length. Needs time in the bottle. My favorite of the group.

The Winery

Altesino

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.
