James Suckling: 95 Points

A concentrated bead of blackberries and minerals pervades the nose and palate. Medium-to full-bodied with well-integrated tannins and a balanced finish. Tight and very focused. Classic Brunello for the vintage. Best from 2023.


Wine Advocate: 94 Points

The Altesino 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is ripe and round with lots of pretty textural richness and juicy fruit flavors. These qualities tie in nicely with the character of the vintage that saw long and hot summer days. Dark fruit plum and blackcurrant pave the way for savory spice tobacco and limestone. The effect is soothing and rich and the wine remains perfumed and silky to the end. The tannins are well managed in this hot-vintage wine. Fruit is sourced over 25 hectares of vines with tufo soils and alberese rock. Production is 110000 bottles.

Vinous: 92 Points

The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino holds your attention with its sweetly seductive mix of wild strawberries stems and all dusty dried flowers and hints of gingery spice. This is pleasantly ripe in style yet balanced throughout with cherries and cloves offset by a hint of candied citrus and bright acids that create a jovial impression. Its tannins are round complemented by notes of licorice and hard red candies as this finishes lightly structured and long. Altesino firmly believes in blending vineyards throughout Montalcino to create the most balanced Brunello from each vintage. In 2017 that approach sure paid off.

Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points

Inviting aromas of ripe plum violet baking spice and leather waft out of the glass. Full-bodied and dense the approachable palate features fleshy black cherry star anise and mocha while velvety tannins provide gentle support. It's already ready so drink soon.
