Wine AdvocateThis 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.
Wine EnthusiastThis opens with aromas suggesting damp underbrush, berry, thyme and culinary spice. On the tense, somewhat lean but accessible palate, you'll find sour cherry, star anise and a coffee-bean note alongside bright acidity and polished tannins. Drink 2020-2026.
