International Wine Cellar Author: Edward Beltrami Issue: Issue 103

($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.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 144

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. It can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years.

Wine Spectator

Wonderfully floral aromas, with plenty of ripe fruit and hints of minerals and spices. Full-bodied and chunky, with well-integrated tannins and a long finish. Fresh and refined. 5,000 cases made.

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.
