External Reviews for Altesino Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Rosso di Altesino
The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino, a classic garnet in color, is logically more powerful and penetrating on the nose, with tobacco and leather along with the red fruit, and shows a sizeable and vigorous palate which will need a bit of time to fully smooth out its tannins. Drink: 2005andndash;2015.
Wonderfully floral aromas, with plenty of ripe fruit and hints of minerals and spices. Full-bodied and chunky, with well-integrated tannins and a long finish. Fresh and refined. Best after 2003.
Outstandingly fresh aromas of roses, berries and spicy oak with hints of incense. Full-bodied, with silky and caressing tannins and a long, finely textured finish. A very pretty wine already. Hard to resist. Best after 2005.
Dark garnet with a ruby rim. Lovely scents of plum, mocha and tobacco regale the nose. Sweet on entry, then nicely delineated, with flavors of plum jam, licorice, mint and tar. Plushly textured, with full fuzzy tannins, this medium-to-full-bodied wine exudes earthy undertones in the lingering finish.
Wonderfully aromatic, lovely black fruit, complex and really rather good. Masses of black fruit and aromatic, long and powerful. 2–5 years.
Deep, dense aromas of porcini and wild strawberry turn to fresh tobacco. Full-bodied, with tight and refined tannins. The finish goes on for minutes. A big, muscular, powerful Montosoli. Austere now; needs years of bottle age. Best after 2009. 1,500 ... Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1999 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli 1500ml
Strangely this one has a nose of Italian bitters, anise and pine. Itrsquo;s not a warm, ripe wine. What it does give is tight, dry cherry and berry flavors with layers of complexity and intrigue. Not very woody or chewy. More old school and an enigma among so many forward, fruity compatriots.
