Wine Advocate

"94-Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""This Riserva is sweeter than I remember past editions being and it shows an immediately darker appearance. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a plump, soft, rich and opulent expression with red fruit aromas of cherry, raspberry and cassis. It's not overtly overripe, but it is thickly layered. That softness of fruit is followed by yielding tannins and luscious fruit layers. Altesino has various vineyard plots spread across the four quadrants of the Brunello appellation. This wine builds in power and momentum."" Issue #223, 3/16."

Antonio Galloni

"93+ Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: ""The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is going to need a few years to soften, as the tannins are imposing today. There is plenty of textural depth and richness, but readers will have to be patient. Attractive scents to tobacco, cedar, smoke, licorice, sage, violet and orange peel add myriad shades of nuance. A kick of warming alcohol accentuates the finish. "" 2/16."

James Suckling

"97-Points, James Suckling: ""A sexy and silky riserva with dried fruit, blueberry and cedar character. Full body, firm tannins and long and gorgeous finish. So linear and precise. Chocolate-covered cherry center palate. Terrific young wine. Best riserva ever from here."" 10/15."
