Brunello Riserva offers a solid, full body and excellent aging potential. Its ample and complex bouquet is reminiscent of violets, wild berries, cedar, leather, tobacco and spices. On the palate, it is austere and seductive with a perfect blend of fruit, acidity and mouth coating tannins. This is the perfect bottle for Brunello lovers.

This delivers intense balsamic notes of juniper, wild rosemary and sage, along with rose, cherry and berry aromas and flavors. Elegant and saturated with flavor, supported by a vibrant structure. Ends with energy and refined tannins. Best from 2022 through 2040.

Deep red. Captivating floral nuances complement red cherry, mineral and tobacco elements on the nose and on the very suave palate. Surprisingly light-bodied for a Brunello Riserva, but perfumed and very refined. This outstanding Brunello Riserva boasts a finish that lasts and lasts.

Plenty of dark cherry essence, blackberry pie, a touch of plum liqueur, baking spices, charcuterie, resin and dried herbs. The palate echoes the richness of the nose with no shortage of dried-fruit flavors, while also embracing tightly wound tannins and a streak of refreshing acidity. Drink in 2020..

From their 40th harvest, Altesino’s Riserva is a selection of grapes from their holdings in Macina, Pianezzine and Castelnuovo dell’Abate, aged exclusively in Slavonian oak casks. This is a much deeper, darker expression compared to the 2013 releases, with flavours of black tea, sweet tobacco and plum, yet this is offset by a lift of pepper and tangy acidity. The mouthcoating tannins need some time to relax their grip. 6,000 bottles produced..

Forest floor, pipe tobacco, leather and eucalyptus aromas abound on this full-bodied red. The taut firmly structured palate offers dried black cherry, raspberry preserve, licorice and dried herb set against tightly packed fine-grained tannins. You'll also detect the warmth of alcohol on the close. Drink from 2022.
