Altesino's two sensational 1990 Brunellos, the Brunello di Montalcino and the Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli, offer intense perfumes of jammy cherry fruit, tobacco, smoke, herbs, and licorice, immense richness and extraction of flavor, full body, and gobs of glycerin and alcohol. The single vineyard Montosoli possesses a thicker, richer texture, more depth and length, and a slightly more focused personality. Both can be drunk today, but promise to evolve for 10-20 years.

The most stylish wine in the tasting, with black truffles, berries and cedar aromas. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long opulent aftertaste. Gorgeous.--1990 Tuscany retrospective. 1,000 cases made.
love this wine still after all these years still drinking well and should be for 10 more years great depth and balance

Mature with amber color, complex nose, slight sweetness balancing acidity. Bit of earth and tar base. Better with additional age. I never thought this was as good as initially rated (RP-94), but now it is.
