Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2017

Brunello di Montalcino, ambassador of the high quality of Italian enology in the world, was the first wine to obtain the DOCG recognition. Brunello shows a brilliant ruby ​​red color, which tends to garnet over the years. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing and refined aromas which start with hints of violet, tobacco, chocolate and pleasant flavors of undergrowth and vanilla. The mouth has excellent correspondence to the nose, a well balanced attack, full body, good tannins and important texture.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Published 17th Feb 2022 - Rated 94:
The Altesino 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is ripe and round with lots of pretty textural richness and juicy fruit flavors. These qualities tie in nicely with the character of the vintage that saw long and hot summer days. Dark fruit, plum and blackcurrant pave the way for savory spice, tobacco and limestone. The effect is soothing and rich, and the wine remains perfumed and silky to the end. The tannins are well managed in this hot-vintage wine. Fruit is sourced over 25 hectares of vines with tufo soils and alberese rock. Production is 110,000 bottles. - Monica Larner

Inviting aromas of ripe plum, violet, baking spice and leather waft out of the glass. Full-bodied and dense, the approachable palate features fleshy black cherry, star anise and mocha while velvety tannins provide gentle support. It's already ready, so drink soon. KERIN O’KEEFE

James Suckling Review - Published February 7, 2022 - Rated 95:
A concentrated bead of blackberries and minerals pervades the nose and palate. Medium-to full-bodied with well-integrated tannins and a balanced finish. Tight and very focused. Classic Brunello for the vintage. Best from 2023.
