ALTESINO BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO RISERVA 2013

Brunello can only be described as "Riserva" if it has aged for five years in the cellar. Only produced during the best years, with a limited number of bottles, Brunello Riserva is destined for truly passionate lovers of wine.

It maintains such an austere and fascinating character on the palate, emphasising its structure of great depth and power.

REVIEWS:
"A relatively stress free growing season tends to transmit more clarity and intensity to the finished product. That's the impression I get when I taste the savory, rich and sophisticated 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. Some 10,000 bottles were released. This wine delivers thick ripeness with bold cherry aromas that are folded into spice, leather and tangy black licorice. This wine achieves a higher level of aromatic intensity compared to the elegant Altesino 2014 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli (which I actually preferred at this tasting). However, my impression is that this riserva from 2013 will ultimately offer a more fruitful and interesting bottle evolution five to ten years from now."- 94 POINTS, Monica Larmer, The Wine Advocate
