Altesino

Ruby-red with a garnet rim, this wine's bouquet displays ample aromas of violet, wild berries, tobacco, chocolate, and vanilla. On the palate, Altesino Brunello is rich, full-bodied, and velvety. With velvety tannins, balanced acidity, and supple body, this Brunello is the wine of choice for rich dishes such as osso bucco, pot roasts, barbecues, and beef stew.

International Wine Cellar

"Enticing aromas of raspberry, strawberry jelly, rose and violet. Dense and suave in the mouth, with harmonious acidity lifting the sweet red cherry and dark berry flavors. Finishes very long, with plenty of mineral zing and a spicy nuance. Great stuff, in a year that's widely perceived to be less important than many other recent vintages."

Score: 92.

Wine Spectator

This is distinctive, with an intense balsamic flavor backed by plum, cherry and spice notes. Sweet and ample for the vintage, covering the firm, underlying tannins. Everything is integrated and long. Best from 2015 through 2028. 9,200 cases made.

Score: 92. —Bruce Sanderson, June 15, 2013.

Wine Enthusiast

Altesino is part of an elite group of vintners that really put Montalcino on the international wine map. Its 2008 Brunello shows some of the nervous acidity that is typical of the vintage, but it also delivers soft tones of cherry fruit, spice and chocolate that round off any sharp edges.

Score: 91. —Monica Larner, May 01, 2013.
