2006 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1074017 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark High-pitched aromas of raspberry, blood orange, minerals, mocha and cocoa powder: I was reminded of Burgundy. Wonderfully tight and perfumed in the mouth, with superb youthful definition to the raspberry and floral flavors. Perfumed and light on its feet. Finishes sharply delineated, firmly tannic and impressively long. With three full days in the recorked bottle, this wine became denser and more minerallly, offering a leathery hint and terrific sexy breadth. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2011)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Amazing aromas of freshly picked flowers and black cherries. Full to medium bodied, with medium tannins and a fruity finish. Coffee and cigar box undertones. More forward and ready to drink than some. Why wait? Inner quote mark (1/2011)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Smells like Burgundy, with floral, cherry, woodsy and graphite aromas and flavors. Sweet and silky, underscored by firm, integrated tannins. Distinctive and delicious. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a gracious, classy wine. Sweet red cherries, flowers, mint and spices are just some of the aromas and flavors that emerge from this mid-weight, restrained Brunello. In 2006 Altesino’s Brunello impresses for its balance, freshness and finessed tannins. It isn’t a blockbuster, but it will drink well upon release and over the next decade or so, perhaps longer. Floral notes waft from the glass on the finish. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Altesino's Brunello is characterized by fine tannins, good acidity and aromas of white cherry, forest floor and bramble. The wine seems less intense than past vintages and there’s a slightly browning edge to its color. Inner quote mark (4/2011)
