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: 2005ndash;2015.
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.
Altesinorsquo;s medium to full-bodied 1997 Brunello di Montalcino boasts a dense ruby/garnet color in addition to aromas of creosote, new saddle leather, figs, plums, dried herbs, and white flowers. It is a meaty, complex, accessible, concentrated yet still young, vigorous Brunello with good underlying acidity and moderated tannin. It can be drunk now or cellared for 12ndash;15 years.

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
Ruby red in color when young, with garnet nuances which tend to be enhanced with age. Very intense and persistent on the nose with aromas of violet and ripe plum that also appear on the palate. firm tannins that need to become round.
