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.

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

This relatively large estate continues to produce some of the most elegant, balanced, yet ageworthy wines in the district. Winemaking here is fairly straightforward, with an eye to preserving primary fruit and retaining the character of the terroirs. As at most of the more progressive estates today, the wines are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The Brunello grapes usually see a two-week cuvaison. About 30% of the Montosoli Brunello gets three to six monthsrsquo; aging in barriques. Those who say that modern Brunello doesnrsquo;t age well need only regard older vintages of Altesinorsquo;s wines. This is a first-rate estate, whose wines in lesser years, while slighter, still show very good balance and drinkability.

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.

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.
