Wine Spectator 92 points - The sweet cherry core is framed by dense, ripe tannins in this red. Leather, tobacco and iron notes add depth. The finish is fresh and long. Best from 2018 through 2030. 8,300 cases made. -BS  (Jun 15 2016)

Wine maker notes
Brunello is considered among Italy’s top-quality wines. Made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes hand-harvested from the Altesino, Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Macina, and Pianezzine vineyards, this wine is an example of finesse and elegance inherent to Montalcino’s best vineyard sites.

Producer
Near the end of 2002, Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini, owner of nearby Tenuta Caparzo, purchased the Altesino winery. Winemaker Claudio Basla remained with the estate, emphasizing his commitment to maintaining Altesino”s hard-earned reputation as a Montalcino institution and a global leader in innovative winemaking.
