Altesino’s esteemed Brunello is built to last. (If you can, consider letting it rest for 20 years or more.) Patience will be rewarded: the winery is a pioneer in the production of Montalcino Sangiovese characterized by balance, finesse, and intensity. This wine brings together fruit from the vineyards of Altesino, Macina, Pianezzine, and Castelnuovo dell’Abate in the Val d’Arbia DOC. First produced in 1972, the wine traditionally ages for at least four years prior to release: a minimum of two years in oak barrels, four months maturation in bottle.

 

Brilliant ruby-red, tending toward garnet red with age, this Brunello has an intense, pure bouquet of sweet violets, tobacco, chocolate, wild berries, and vanilla. The palate confirms the nose, yielding a full, well-balanced wine with firm tannins and nicely-defined structure.

 

“The Altesino 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows beautiful depth and latitude, with broad fruit aromas of dark cherry and cassis that recall the warmth and golden sunlight of the vintage. The wine is deceivingly streamlined in terms of mouthfeel, but that slim and buttoned-down backbone supports a broad range of flavours and sensations, from lavender essence and camphor ash to moist soil and toasted spice. All of these elements are delivered with impressive harmony and unity, and I expect that this wine will continue on a slow, steady and satisfying aging trajectory over the next 10 years or more. Fruit is sourced from across 21 hectares of vines with tufaceous limestone soils and Alberese rock, which contributes to the freshness and balanced structure of the wine. The wine was bottled in June 2019 (with 150,000 bottles made), and this wine was released in January 2020.”

95 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, Jan 2020
