Wine Advocate: 95 Points

The Altesino 2019 Brunello di Montalcino boasts a rich and savory side that this wine wears very well. There is a beautiful level of dark fruit that folds into the wine's velvety texture. Blackberry and plum envelop the palate adding elegant full-bodied volume and fine tannins along the way. The wine is aged in traditional Slavonian casks and production reaches 110000 bottles annually (which is very ambitious considering this level of quality). Altesino hits it out of the ballpark with its 2019 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Montosoli. This wine stands out for its faithful representation of its environment. Mineral-rich sensations reflect the schistic galestro soils of this unique vineyard site. Published: Dec 14 2023

Vinous: 94 Points

A dark ruby color in the glass the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino opens with a beguiling blend of dusty earth crushed rocks savory herbs and dried roses. This is racy and sleek with vividly ripe wild berry fruits elevated by orange and sage all guided by vibrant acidity. Grippy tannins take control through the finish yet the mouth is left watering for more as a bitter licorice tinge and dark chocolate adds a crunchy sensation. - By Eric Guido on November 2023 The 2019s from Altesino are some of the best new releases I can remember tasting at this address. The Brunello a blend of vineyards throughout the region is stunning with its depth complexity and energy combination
