Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2013

$49.95

The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is absolutely unique in terms of its aromatic display. To me, the nose is particularly beautiful because I have a preference for balsamic notes of cola, mint or medicinal herb... You get those in spades here... There is subtle fruit at the back, with wild berry and plum. The mouthfeel here is absolutely silky, fresh and streamlined. It is stitched finely together like lace...this is my kind of Brunello. Bottoms up! Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Fragrant, fresh (!), and balanced. Bags of cherries and cherry syrup on the nose, with dry, stony-gravelly notes. Pure intense dark cherry fruit and dark minerals in the mouth. Concentrated yet with terrific acidity and youthful but soft tannins. This will improve for at least 5 more years but is really nice now.

Best nose of the day. Strawberry preserve, which is so decadent. This has grace and poise on the palete. Less power, and more finesse. Drinking now, but best left and allowed to unfurl.

Slight cassis and cedar nose, sweet sour fruit, in a good spot now! Just the ending should have been a bit longer for a higher score. Nevertheless, superb wine

Ganske fin, men også lidt for slikken og velfriserede til at være rigtig god

Wonderfull! Very fruit driven, cassis but in a good way (I’m sensitive to cassis). Integrated tannins. Tasting even better in these difficult days. Wishing everybody a good health!!!
