Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"This wine opens to a thin and streamlined appearance. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino mirrors the main characteristics of the vintage with a clean mouthfeel and bright berry aromas. The Brunellos from 2014 are better suited to near or medium-term drinking and that's definitely the case with this wine. I'd suggest a pairing with your favorite pasta dish topped with creamy cheese sauce. Sangiovese has the natural acidity to cut through any fatty foods. This expression from Altesino achieves more fruit ripeness in 2014 with aromas of plum, dark cherry and dried cassis. Some 110,000 bottles were produced."- Monica Larner, _Wine Advocate_ *(92 points)*January 2019

Lightest cherry colour. Slight bricking. Scent is very Brunello-Sangiovese, with dried Maraschino cherry and cedar bark prominent. Entry is velvet smooth - with a hint of vanilla (oak) but only a hint of tannin on the finish. Surprisingly mature. Less powerful than anticipated, but it has been a while between bottles. Excellent value, though, with plenty of acid for the cellar-wise buyer. Drink now to 2023 and beyond. A solid 4 cups or 92 points.
