    Wine Advocate Notes
    96 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Altesino 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli (with 15,000 bottles produced) is a true beauty. The wine reveals dark fruit intensity that comes forth as blackberry, plum and summer cherry. In no time, those aromas shift to the savory side of the spectrum with smoke, tar and tobacco. The results are generous and layered, offering the best of what the celebrated Montosoli cru can offer, especially in an ironic vintage such as this." 11/20
    Vinous Media
    96 Points, Eric Guido, Vinous: "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli pulls you close to the glass with a captivating display of candied citrus rinds, incense and dried roses giving way to rich cherry sauce and a hint of brown spice. It’s deeply textural yet youthfully dense, as it first cools the palate with lavender and ripe dark red fruits; yet beneath is a layer of grippy tannins that close the wine down. Notes of licorice, black tea and purple florals linger on the youthfully chewy finale. The 2016 is just a baby today, and it will need a number of years to come fully into focus - but it will be worth the wait." 11/20
    James Suckling Notes
    97 Points, James Suckling: "Lovely sweet cherries and heather with some leather and balsamic undertones. It’s full-bodied with a velvety and lightly dusty palate. Juicy fruit and pretty orange peel to the berry character. Hints of cedar and meat at the end. Subtle and complex. Drink after 2025."
    Wine Spectator Notes
    97 points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: “Packed with sweet, ripe cherry, plum and raspberry fruit and framed by loamy earth and woodsy notes, this red is intense, lively and light on its feet. Balanced, with firm tannins and a salty, minerally impression on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2024 through 2045. 1,200 cases made.” 03/21
    Wine Enthusiast Notes
    97 points, Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast: “Rose, forest berry, underbrush and new leather are some of the aromas you’ll find on this full-bodied red. From one of Montalcino’s greatest vineyard sites, the firmly structured, elegant palate is also delicious, boasting ripe black cherry, raspberry compote, tobacco and licorice set against taut, fine-grained tannins. It’s well balanced, with bright acidity. Drink 2024–2036.” 03/21
    97+ Points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: Nice floral profile for this label of Altesino: on the nose, violet petals with small red fruits, raspberries, and pomegranate. Then, an agreeable officinal spiciness from fresh bay leaf. Juicy and crisp mouth. Iodized tannins and beautiful persistence." 11/20
