Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92

($60) Dark garnet with a ruby rim. Lovely scents of plum, mocha and tobacco regale the nose. Sweet on entry, then nicely delineated, with flavors of plum jam, licorice, mint and tar. Plushly textured, with full fuzzy tannins, this medium-to-full-bodied wine exudes earthy undertones in the lingering finish.

WOW. WHAT A GREAT WINE. SOLID FRUIT DARK CARE WITH INTEGRATED TANNINS. Is this what Brunellos are about? Sign me up for more. Has plenty of years left for the cellar.

Altesino's medium to full-bodied 1997 Brunello di Montalcino boasts a dense ruby/garnet color in addition to aromas of creosote, new saddle leather, figs, plums, dried herbs, and white flowers. It is a meaty, complex, accessible, concentrated yet still young, vigorous Brunello with good underlying acidity and moderate tannin.
