Altesino Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"Aromas of juniper, rosemary, thyme and Szechuan peppercorn segue to strawberry, cherry and rose hip flavors in this elegant red. Intense and balanced, with the structure to develop over the next two decades. Shows excellent depth and length. Best from 2022 through 2043. 833 cases made, 500 cases imported." --The Wine Spectator*Wine Spectator rated: 97 pts.*

Wine Description: This special, limited edition wine is made only in spectacular vintages and in small quantities from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes hand harvested from the Altesino, Macina, Pianezzine and Castelnuovo dell'Abate vineyards. This riserva is produced only in the best years in very limited quantities. Tasting Notes: 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. Food Pairing: Pair with Steak au poivre, rack of lamb or beef carpaccio. ** Only 12 in Stock **
