Great wine, we got as closeout for $30 and it was a great deal. Very drinkable right away.
Tasted this at the Winery in June 2009. Not quite as good as the Reserva of the same vintage in my judgement, but exceptional regardless. While the tannins are handled well, I expect improvement on the remaining bottles I have with some time in the cellar
A wonderful inviting wine, deep red, with a delicious leathery bouquet - you just want to drink it the moment you see it. Appearance: long legs, excellent retention to the glass. Taste: very smooth and velvety, thick texture, a real full bodied wine. Long aftertaste. A pleasure to drink, and difficult to stop.
Full bodied and rich, brick red colour with a lot of tannines left as of March 2011. Would leave it in the cellar for another 3-5 yard, then serve it on a dark and rainy October evening with deer or elch and root vegetables :-)
External Reviews for Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Die Aromen des Brunello Altero sind dominiert von der Fruchtigkeit schwarzer Beeren mit würzigem Unterton. Nicht Barriques werden verwendet, sondern Tonneaux, aus edelstem französischem Eichenholz. Die feinen vanilligen Noten bleiben deshab kaum wahrnehmbar, diskret im Hintergrund. Altero ist damit eine moderne Alternative zum klassischen Brunello.

Delicious from start to finish; quite powerful. It's very ripe and very sweet-tasting and melts in the mouth, showing tons of plum, red berry and chocolate flavors. Give it until 1997 to come together.
Displays aromas of raspberries, flowers and minerals. Full-bodied, yet refined and racy, with hints of black pepper and blackberry character. Racy finish. Drink now.
Poggio Antico is one of the brightest stars in 2004 Brunello di Montalcino. Paola Gloder and her team deliver a gorgeous wine that reaches to the highest levels of aromatic richness and intensity. The wine is succulent, concentrated and elegant with amazing persistency. Only the slight sourness of its tannins prevented it from scoring higher. Age five more years.
Aromas of black cherry and mineral, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with pretty fruit, soft tannins and a medium finish. Balanced for the vintage. Best after 2008.
Good deep red. Pretty aromas of currant, coffee, graphite, smoke and tobacco. Plump, silky and suave, with a restrained sweetness and lovely inner-mouth aromatic character to the spicy flavors. This broad, round wine benefits from harmonious framing acidity. Finishes with sweet tannins and very good length. Very expressive, ripe sangiovese.
