Winemaker's Notes

Altesino is one of the best producers of Brunello di Montalcino, and its single-vineyard Brunello, Montosoli, is the benchmark wine. It shows the power and finesse that Sangiovese can produce in the unique soils and climate of the region. Since the estate was founded in the mid-1970s, Montosoli has only been made in seven vintages: 1975, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1993, 1995 and 1997. I gave the 1997, a complex yet reserved red with a long future ahead of it, a rating of 98 points.
