This wine is a brilliant ruby red tending to browny red when aged. The perfume is intensely pure and refined and reminds one of sweet violet, tobacco, chocolate with the taste of forest fruits and vanilla. The taste in the mouth corresponds with the nose. The alcohol is well-balanced and the wine is full-bodied with good tannins important structure.

Wine EnthusiastAltesino delivers a wonderfully harmonious wine that invites one delicious sip after another thanks to its polished intensity. Subtle wood shadings appear in the background of bright cherry and blackberry. Overall, what distinguishes this wine is the sense of focus, sharpness and purity.

Wine SpectatorShows bright berry, earth, mushroom and leather on the nose. Full-bodied, with very ripe, almost raisiny fruit. Tight and lean now, but the rich fruit comes through on the finish. Give this time. Best after 2011.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Brunello di Montalcino offers up dark fruit, grilled herbs, tobacco, leather, licorice and sweet herbs in a mid-weight style. The tannins are elegant and refined throughout, only slight elements of greenness keep the score from going higher. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.
