The Altesino Brunello is a brilliant ruby red color, tending towards garnet red with age. Its bouquet is intense, pure, pleasant and refined, reminiscent of sweet violet, tobacco, chocolate and pleasant hints of wild berries and vanilla. Its flavor fully confirms the above in a well-balanced, full-bodied wine with good tannins and a solid structure.

My favorite Brunello. Always consistently superior flavors, long tasty finish, and a dense chewy quality. Visited the Altesino winery in September at harvest time. Mark your calendars for the 2014 release.
