Description

This special, limited edition Brunello is made only in spectacular vintages and in small quantities from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes hand harvested from the Altesino, Macina, Pianezzine vineyards. Altesino’s Riserva offers a solid, full body and excellent aging potential. Its complex bouquet of violets, wild berries, cedar, leather and tobacco give way to a seductive palate with perfect balance of fruit, acidity and tannins. 

James Suckling
Fantastic aromas of blueberries, plums, bark and wet earth follow through to a full body, velvety and polished tannins and a wonderful finish. Refined and persistent on the finish. Drink in 2019 and onwards.
Wine Enthusiast
Balancing power and grace, this wine delivers alluring aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry, raspberry compote, grilled herb, licorice and tar. Vibrant acidity and firm, velvety tannins provide freshness and structure, while a hint of pipe tobacco closes the lingering finish.
