Altesino Montosoli Brunello di Montalcino 2016

14% abv

Original Single Vineyard Brunello, first produced 1975, 5ha NE of Montalcino 350- 400m on what is the ‘true’ Montosoli terroir as opposed to the now-expanded limits of the name. The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli pulls you close to the glass with a captivating display of candied citrus rinds, incense and dried roses giving way to rich cherry sauce and a hint of brown spice. It’s deeply textural yet youthfully dense, as it first cools the palate with lavender and ripe dark red fruits; yet beneath is a layer of grippy tannins that close the wine down. Notes of licorice, black tea and purple florals linger on the youthfully chewy finale. The 2016 is just a baby today, and it will need a number of years to come fully into focus – but it will be worth the wait.

The Altesino winery is located on the northern side of Montalcino, yet it farms vineyards throughout the north, south and eastern parts of the region, with elevations ranging from 180 meters in the east, up to 300 meters in the north on the hill of Montosoli. Consulting enologist, Paolo Caciorgna, believes that it’s within the diversity of their many different terroir that they are able to succeed in most vintages, a comment that is validated by the straight Brunello and Riserva of the house. Their range of Brunello, all of which come from a different blending of vineyards, or just the one in the case of Montosoli; all share the same process of élevage in the winery. From the Brunello, through the Montosoli and also the Riserva, the wines are refined for a total of twenty-four months in large
Slavonian oak casks.
