Altesino Rosso di Montalcino 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Wine Enthusiast: Strawberry, cherry, apple cider, almond paste, caramel, hints of mint and deeper notes of chocolate and espresso make for an engaging and complex nose. Pronounced acidity is backed by firm tannins and a smooth, spicy finish. A Cellar Selection. (Apr 2006)
