Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino Altero 1999

Member Review by 97mjr:

[Meat Sauce] Nice nose with red fruit and some earth. On the palate concentrated, found the earth overwhelming, shoe leather. Not my style. Decanted over night developed more fruit, smoke, mint, rose pedals; not sure would have guessed brunello blindly. Will put these away for some time (2010)

A fresh red with plenty of dried cherry and blackberry character and hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, with loads of silky tannins and a wonderfully long finish of fruit and tannins. A beautiful wine. Best after 2005. 1,420 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1999 Poggio Antico Altero Brunello di Montalcino 750ml
