ALTESINO BRUNELLO 2010

Altesino
 
We are delighted to offer the excellent 2010 BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO from Altesino (95 JS, 93+ WA) from just £330 per 12 in bond.
 
Based in the far north of the Montalcino region, Altesino have been innovators in this famous wine region since 1979, when they first introduced French oak barriques for maturation of the wines.  A small producer with a focus on quality, the wines are quite modern in style but still recognisably Brunello and always reasonably priced.
 
The 2010 Altesino Brunello is a fantastic wine in this great vintage - beautifully balanced, elegant, complex and long.  The exceptional 2010 Brunellos are becoming increasingly difficult to find and this is a brilliant opportunity to secure a few cases of one of the standout wines from the vintage at a very reasonable price.
 
"Guido Orzalesi's Altesino has reached a new level of excellence in 2010. The wines of this historic estate have long been recognized for their extreme elegance and finesse. The excellent conditions of the vintage have conspired to bring even more distinction to the estate. Altesino's Ace card is its land. The estate owns some of the most spectacular vineyard sites in the appellation including the legendary Montosoli cru. Thanks to the optimal growing conditions, the estate's fruit is more expressive than I have ever tasted"

“Wonderful decadent aromas of musk, orange peel and plum follow through to a full body, with soft tannins and a long and rich finish. Salty and savory. Layers of gorgeous fruit. Drink or hold."

“Altesino's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino stands proud among its peers. No other wine I tasted among the new releases in Montalcino achieves this unique level of aromatic finesse and distinction. The bouquet is almost purely floral in character with a strong emphasis on pressed rose petal, dried violets and potpourri. The fruit tones are less emphatic and include bright cherry and red currant. In the mouth, the wine's compressed texture is accented by fennel seed and licorice. The 2009 vintage had more power and heat, but this version shows elegant restraint."
