Montosoli is perhaps the most celebrated single vineyard site in Montalcino. Because it is farmed by multiple producers, we get a chance to taste many interesting and divergent expressions of Montosoli Sangiovese. Altesino's 2014 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli (with 10,000 bottles made) is one of the most consistent year in and year out. The wine boats a beautifully refined and complex bouquet with an embroidery of wild berry notes that segue to spice, tar and grilled herb. I love the wine's intensity. I can't believe it was easy to achieve without significant sacrifices in the vineyard (including rigorous green harvesting). The mouthfeel is smooth, silky and long. This is one of the best Brunellos made in the difficult 2014 growing season. Hands down.

There’s underlying, subtle fruit to this with fresh citrus undertones. Focused and fine. Medium-bodied, linear and bright and a beautiful finish. Drink and enjoy.
