Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Altesino 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows beautiful depth and latitude, with broad fruit aromas of dark cherry and cassis that recall the warmth and golden sunlight of the vintage. The wine is deceivingly streamlined in terms of mouthfeel, but that slim and buttoned-down backbone supports a broad range of flavors and sensations, from lavender essence and camphor ash to moist soil and toasted spice. All of these elements are delivered with impressive harmony and unity, and I expect that this wine will continue on a slow, steady and satisfying aging trajectory over the next 10 years or more. Fruit is sourced from across 21 hectares of vines with tufaceous limestone soils and Alberese rock, which contributes to the freshness and balanced structure of the wine. The wine was bottled in June 2019, and this wine was released in January 2020.

James Suckling
Terracotta, earth, iron filings, cedar and leather make for an undergrowth-driven Brunello 2015, which doesn’t fall short in the fruit department either, where there are red plums and red cherries. The tannins are neatly stacked, one on top of the other, with tidy acidity drawing in vibrant fruit and keeping it taut throughout. Balanced and stylish. Drink from 2023.

Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of underbrush, leather, camphor and wild berry form the nose. On the elegant, medium bodied palate, licorice and clove accent a core of juicy black cherry while polished tannins lend refined support. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced.

Vinous
Altesino's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers a rich yet classic expression of Sangiovese fruit, showing ripe red berries coated in dusty earth tones, with hints of leather and dried florals completing the picture. On the palate, brisk acids frame silky textures, creating a polished expression of red and black fruits, savory spice and saline-minerals. The finish is long yet fresh, as cooling mint and licorice tones carry remnants of red berry fruit hovering above a core of fine tannins. Drinking window: 2024 - 2038.

About the Producer: Altesino

Societa Agricola Altesino is a leading property in Montalcino, Tuscany, especially famous for its Brunello wines. Its expression Montosoli was one of the first "raw" wines produced in Italy when it was introduced in 1975. The company produces a variety of wines. Generic Brunello di Montalcino is aged for four years, at least two years in large Slavic oak barrels, five and three years for Riserva. Montosoli wine ages for at least two years in barrels and another three to four months in French barrels (only four years in the cellar). Rosso di Montalcino ages for eight months in Slavic oak. Palazzo Altese IGT Toscana is 100 percent Sangiovese made with partial charcoal maceration. Other wines include Alte d'Altesi and Rosso di Altesino, both blends of Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot; Bianco di Altesino by Vermentino, Chardonnay and Viognier; and Vin Santo from Trebbiano and Malvasia. The portfolio also includes various grappa and brandies, as well as olive oil. In Altezino, about 50 hectares (123 acres) are planted with vines. It is divided into two groups: Altesino, Machina, Castelnuovo dell Abatae (in Velona), Panezzina and the famous Montesoli. Most of the plantations belong to Sangiovese (known here as Sangiovese di Montalcino) for Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino wines.
