*#18 on Top 100 of 2015, Collectible* A stunning red, featuring peony, strawberry, cherry and mineral flavors, accented by notes of wild herbs. Intense and deep, with great purity and elegance, a firmly wrought structure and a long finish. The harmony between fruit, tannins and acidity should allow this to age beautifully. *No. 18 in Top 100 Wines of 2015* (BS)
Beautiful aromas of dark fruits and minerals. Full-bodied, succulent and chewy. It's tight and stony. Lots of black olives and wet earth under the fruit. Bright and linear wine with beautiful layers.
Montosoli enthusiasts will not be disappointed by the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli. This special single-vineyard expression shows a beautifully fragrant and floral bouquet that is exactly in line with what this firmly consistent producer strives to achieve. This wine represents one of the most distinctive expressions of varietal voice and that's what makes it so precious and rare. Sangiovese sings loud with small berry nuances and loud floral impressions of rose, violet and lavender. Its underlying complexity is further enhanced by anise seed, cola and licorice stick. The wine's texture is soothing soft and silky. This is one for your cellars to age ten years or more. Guido Orzalesi's Altesino has reached a new level of excellence in 2010. The wines of this historic estate have long been recognized for their extreme elegance and finesse. The excellent conditions of the vintage have conspired to bring even more distinction to the estate. Altesino's Ace card is its land. The estate owns some of the most spectacular vineyard sites in the appellation including the legendary Montosoli cru. Thanks to the optimal growing conditions, the estate's fruit is more expressive than I have ever tasted. (ML)
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli possesses gorgeous textural depth and resonance, both in the classic, mid-weight style of the year. Sweet red cherry, plum, tobacco, spice and savory herb overtones flesh out as the 2010 Montosoli shows off its distinctive personality. Finessed, silky tannins round out a finish laced with rose petal, cherry pit and pipe tobacco. (AG)
The Montosoli plot sits at 1,250 feet of elevation, and in 2010 it yielded an intensely fresh and fragrant wine. Polished tannins frame bright flavors of red cherry and pomegranate, even some guava and nectarine, spiced with notes of white pepper and lifted by lovely floral aromas. The wine feels cool and elegant, with a freshness that persisted for days after the bottle was opened.
From Montalcino’s most famous vineyard site, this opens with aromas of cured meat, grilled herb and a whiff of mature olive. The palate offers red cherry, licorice, savory herb and a mineral note alongside youthfully assertive but fine-grained tannins that need time to unwind. (KK)
Deep ruby with narrow orange rim. Ripe, lifted fruit with hints of smoky oak. The nose puts you on the wrong foot, because the palate is youthful and lifted with fragrant raspberry. Elegant mid-weight feel to it, but sure pulls all the stops with a long concentrated fruit finish with bite on the end. Needs age! (WS) 17.5/20
