Ruby red, tending to garnet red with ageing. A broad, ethereal and compound smell with hints of violet and a pleasant hint of wild berries and vanilla. The palate is dry, warm and velvety, denoting a rich texture and fine breed. Pair with roasted red meat, noble game and medium aged cheese.

Amazing aromas of freshly picked flowers and black cherries. Full to medium bodied, with medium tannins and a fruity finish. Coffee and cigar box undertones. More forward and red to drink than some. Why wait?

Smells like Burgundy, with floral, cherry, woodsy and graphite aromas and flavors. Sweet and silky, underscored by firm, integrated tannins. Distinctive and delicious. Best from 2013 through 2022. 7,500 cases made.

Altesino's Brunello is characterized by fine tannins, good acidity and aromas of white cherry, forest floor and bramble. The wine seems less intense than past vintages and there's a slightly browning edge to its color.
