Altesino Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli 2009
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine EnthusiastThis wine, from perhaps Montalcino's most famous single vineyard, opens with fruit aromas of black plum, black berries, cake spices and a whiff of new leather. The ripe, round palate delivers sweet black cherry layered with notes of chocolate and hints of vanilla alongside friendly tannins. While it lacks its usual complexity, it's juicy, delicious and extremely accessible. Drink 2015-2019.
Wine SpectatorCherry and berry fruit is buried beneath balsamic and briar aromas and flavors in this elegant, fluid red. A bit pinched on the finish now, but this remains fresh and long. Best from 2016 through 2025. 830 cases made.
