Winemaker Notes

Brilliant ruby-red color, this classic Rosso offers sumptuous aromas of ripened blackberries and dark cherries. On the palate, the wine is generously well-rounded and rich with fruit-forward notes complimented by hints of leather and mesquite.

Critical Acclaim

95 pts James Suckling: 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.
 
94 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 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. Best after 2024.
 
92 pts Wine Spectator: Blackberry, black cherry, iron and loam aromas and flavors are the highlights of this firmly-structured red. Fresh, picking up rosemary and oak spice accents on the finish. Best from 2025 through 2042. 11,600 cases made, 3,500 cases imported.
