Altesino’s Brunello Riserva remains quite reserved on the nose for now, but with a bit of coaxing there are lovely dark cherry fruit and dark chocolate aromas. On the palate you are immediately struck by the depth of the wine. The layers of tannin create fantastic space on the palate and are well integrated, with dark berry and black cherry fruit flavours adding a fleshy richness to the wine. Savoury toasted hazelnut, floral violet and darker bitter chocolate notes add to the wine’s complexity. There is a lovely energy on the fantail finish with the dried floral bouquet nicely sitting above the fruit and lingering long on the tongue.
