    About Altesino

    Altesino has always been a disruptively pioneering figure in Montalcino. One of the very first producers to age its wines in small French oak barriques, thus lessening the invasive presence of strong woody influences, the elegance of Altesino stood out instantly. An even greater leap came with their decision to introduce the concept of cru bottlings to Montalcino, crafting glorious expressions of specific individual terroirs in the form of the “Montosoli” cuvée.

    Purchased by the owner of nearby Tenuta Caparzo in 2002, Altesino is poised to maintain its position at the very top of Brunello, and is clearly thriving amidst the greatest revolution within the region to take place since the Biondi-Santi “invention” of Brunello over 100 years ago.

    Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2015 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (95)

    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. The wine was bottled in June 2019 (with 150,000 bottles made), and this wine was released in January 2020.

    Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2016 (6x75cl)

    Jeb Dunnuck (95+)

    The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino has remarkably consistent integration from the nose to the palate. There are generous aromatics of fresh raspberry, rosemary, lavender and Mediterranean herbs. The palate opens up with ripe and inviting cherry fruit and tea leaf, with supple tannin and freshness on the finish. Its drinkability now should not be confused for a lack of structure, as it is true to the energetic nature of the vintage. Drink 2021-2036.

    Altesino Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli 1999 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (86)

    Bright, dark red. Very ripe nose shows a distinctly party quality. Sweeter and fatter than the basic bottling, with notes of herbs and licorice, but offers less definition and verve, despite possessing rather strong acidity. Finishes with dusty, drying tannins. A rather awkward combination of roasted flavors and ungiving texture. (Stick to this producer's excellent regular bottling. )

    James Suckling (94)

    A very ripe style with prune, berry and salted-nut aromas and flavors. Full body, savory intensity and a long, flavorful finish. Lots of juicy, fabulous fruit. Shows the greatness of the vineyard. Drink or hold.

    Altesino Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli 2013 (1x300cl)

    Vinous (97)

    Good full pale ruby-red. Knockout aromas and flavors of red cherry, raspberry, licorice and minerals, complicated by hints of iris and violet. Extremely suave and polished on the extremely long, pure, mineral finish. Deeper, richer, more tannic and longer than the lovely 2013 Brunello Classico from Altesino, this is an absolutely beautiful Brunello. I especially like that the pristine, refined aromas and flavors of the famed Montosoli site are showcased to maximum effect here. One of the best Brunellos of the vintage.

    James Suckling (97)

    A very nuanced but powerful Brunello showing hibiscus, raspberry tea, gunpowder, petrichor, dried orange rind and spearmint. The rows of sharp tannins are very defined and agile, and the acidity is tensely strung up in overtures of vivacious red fruit. A beautiful, nimble Brunello 2015. Drink from 2024.

    Wine Spectator (97)

    Packed with sweet, ripe cherry, plum and raspberry fruit and framed by loamy earth and woodsy notes, this red is intense, lively and light on its feet. Balanced, with firm tannins and a salty, minerally impression on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2024 through 2045. 1,200 cases made.
