Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is beautiful in this vintage. Layers of dark red cherries, flowers, licorice and tobacco caress the palate in this generous, expressive Brunello. The 2007 presents an intriguing combination of classic Sangiovese aromas and flavors with the generosity and radiance of the vintage. The 2007 Brunello was made from vineyards in several sub-zones in Montalcino and was aged in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.  (Apr 2012)

Wine Spectator 92 points - Sanguine, iron and loam aromas lead off, followed by cherry, balsamic and herb flavors. Rich and chewy in texture, with sweet fruit and a lingering finish. Drink now through 2023.óB.S. (Jun 13 2012)

Wine maker notes
Brunello is considered among Italy’s top-quality wines. Made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes hand-harvested from the Altesino, Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Macina, and Pianezzine vineyards, this wine is an example of finesse and elegance inherent to Montalcino’s best vineyard sites.

Producer
Near the end of 2002, Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini, owner of nearby Tenuta Caparzo, purchased the Altesino winery. Winemaker Claudio Basla remained with the estate, emphasizing his commitment to maintaining Altesino”s hard-earned reputation as a Montalcino institution and a global leader in innovative winemaking.
