Great wine, we got as closeout for $30 and it was a great deal. Very drinkable right away.

First of all the opinion of Arianna and Sabrina on the quality of Poggio Antico's wines. Arianna is Paola and Alberto's eldest daughter. Sabrina is her cousin; since they were little girls, they usually fiercely argue, but never over Poggio Antico's wines! Poggio Antico enjoys a very good reputation in the marketplace.

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 :-)

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.

Poggio Antico's 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is the more classic of the two Brunellos. It reveals a pretty, accessible expression of earthiness, tobacco and ripe red fruit with lovely density and purity. The tannins are particularly finessed within the context of the vintage yet the wine comes across as more tightly wound than is normally the case. On the plus side, a lingering note of sweetness from the oak frames the long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2016.

Good bright, dark red. Reticent nose hints at red fruits and oak, with nuances of fresh mint and sage coming up with air. Quite tight, even austere, in the mouth, without the flesh or sweetness often shown by this wine in the early going. Very inexpressive today. The tannins build and coat the front teeth, leaving a distinctly dry impression. This may yet repay cellaring, but today it's tough going.

The estate’s 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a soft, supple effort. Silky tannins frame a graceful core of perfumed ripe fruit. This medium-bodied Brunello reveals terrific length and focus in a mid-weight, polished style. The wine is likely to acquire more complexity in bottle but its balance makes it one of the more accessible 2004 Brunellos. Anticipated maturity: 2009–2016.

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a marvelous wine graced with expressive violets, black cherries, minerals, spices and subtle French oak.
