2015 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1484785 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Terracotta, earth, iron filings, cedar and leather make for an undergrowth-driven Brunello 2015, which doesn't fall short in the fruit department either, where there are red plums and red cherries. The tannins are neatly stacked, one on top of the other, with tidy acidity drawing in vibrant fruit and keeping it taut throughout. Balanced and stylish. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Altesino 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows beautiful depth and latitude, with broad fruit aromas of dark cherry and cassis that recall the warmth and golden sunlight of the vintage. The wine is deceivingly streamlined in terms of mouthfeel, but that slim and buttoned-down backbone supports a broad range of flavors and sensations, from lavender essence and camphor ash to moist soil and toasted spice. All of these elements are delivered with impressive harmony and unity, and I expect that this wine will continue on a slow, steady and satisfying aging trajectory over the next 10 years or more. Fruit is sourced from across 21 hectares of vines with tufaceous limestone soils and Alberese rock, which contributes to the freshness and balanced structure of the wine.

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Altesino's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers a rich yet classic expression of Sangiovese fruit, showing ripe red berries coated in dusty earth tones, with hints of leather and dried florals completing the picture. On the palate, brisk acids frame silky textures, creating a polished expression of red and black fruits, savory spice and saline-minerals. The finish is long yet fresh, as cooling mint and licorice tones carry remnants of red berry fruit hovering above a core of fine tannins. (EG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Aromas of underbrush, leather, camphor and wild berry form the nose. On the elegant, medium bodied palate, licorice and clove accent a core of juicy black cherry while polished tannins lend refined support. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. (KO) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Juicy, featuring licorice, wild herb and earth notes that complement the macerated cherry and strawberry fruit flavors. Balanced, with light tannins leaving a dusty feel on the finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

I gave this Brunello, 2 stars, beautifully layered, expressive wine bursting with sweet ripe strawberries, black cherries intermingled with subtle earth and toasted oak notes, minerals and a hint of bitter chocolate on the on the finish, round and ripe tannins and a long aftertaste.
