    "Intense and balanced, with the structure to develop over the next two decades. Shows excellent depth and length." ~ Wine Spectator

    From the rolling, fecund hills of Tuscany we've managed to get some Altesino Riserva Brunello di Montalcino. It's a memorable vintage, and this bottle is savory, rich, and certain to light up your meal and table. Hold it for at least a year or two and then have at it. You'll be glad you did.

    Wine Spectator: "Aromas of juniper, rosemary, thyme and Szechuan peppercorn segue to strawberry, cherry and rose hip flavors in this elegant red. Intense and balanced, with the structure to develop over the next two decades. Shows excellent depth and length. Best from 2022 through 2043." Mar 2019

    Winery: "This special, limited edition wine is made only in spectacular vintages and in small quantities from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes hand harvested from the Altesino, Macina, Pianezzine and Castelnuovo dell'Abate vineyards. This riserva is produced only in the best years in very limited quantities. It is the perfect bottle for Brunello lovers. Serving temperature: 64F. Pair with Steak au poivre, rack of lamb or beef carpaccio."
