Wine Description

(From 2003 Vintage) Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli, from one of the region''s top sites, is fresher and more vibrant than the regular bottling, with superior balance and finesse. It shows lovely plumpness, clarity and depth in its black cherries, oak, spices and tobacco. This medium to full-bodied wine should drink beautifully over the next decade.

Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) This small vineyard produced one of Italy’s first ”cru” wines. Located at the top of Altesino’s vineyards is the prestigious Montosoli vineyard where ancient limestone soils with the 360 degree exposure combine to yield a Brunello of exceptional style and elegance.
