Robert Parker 94 Points The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (from Montosoli) is a rich, sumptuous wine bursting with sweet black cherries, incense, liquorice and tobacco. The 2006 Riserva boasts fabulous depth to match a full-bodied personality that is highly appealing. With air, the Riserva si approachable today, but it has the depth to continue to evolve for many years. This is a fabulous showing for Altesino.'
Wine Spectator 94 Points Pungent with balsamic and maccia underbrush aromas, this distinctive red also features cherry. Leather and tobacconotes. The supple texture is offset by firm yet ripe and refined tannins. Excellent length.'
