From the Critics:

  • "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. -JS" 95 points Wine Spectator

    "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." 93 points Wine Enthusiast

    "The estate's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli is a big, strapping wine loaded with dark fruit, smoke, new leather and minerals. The Montosoli, from one of Montalcino's top sites, shows considerable density and richness. The tannins build on the finish, rounding out a gorgeous Brunello that achieves a brilliant combination of power and elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022."

    "This a beautiful set of wines from Altesino, a historic producer that in recent years has made noticeable strides to improve quality. Altesino ages its Brunellos in cask, while the wines in the Altesi range are aged in smaller French oak barrels." 92 points - Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate

    "Medium red. Riper aromas of redcurrant, plum and leather, complicated by a whiff of apricot. Ripe, sweet and broad, showing more weight and structure than the winery's basic bottling, but also a strong impression of soil character. Finishes fleshier and longer, with sweet, building tannins that coat the front teeth." 90 points - Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar

    WINE:
    "A broad, ethereal and compound smell with hints of violet and a pleasant hint of wild berries and vanilla. Dry, warm and velvety, shows rich texture and fine breed. "

    "Altesino has given an extra push to Brunello through the introduction of the concept of the Cru. Montosoli is a five hectare vineyard situated to the northeast of Montalcino at an altitude of 350-400 metres. The grapes from this vineyard were fermented and aged separately for the first time after the 1975 harvest. Brunello Montosoli was produced in the years 1975, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1993, 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001, 2003 and will be produced from the 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2008 harvests." -Winery - 95 Pts Wine Spectator
