Montalcino

 

Years ago when I first met Claudio Basla in Montalcino he told me that he and a few other producers were going to show the world that Brunello could be a great wine, in fact, one of the best in the world. Claudio was the winemaker and manager of Cantina Altesino. He made sure the vineyards and the winery were in the best shape possible. 

Among other things he switched the oak treatment to a shorter time in barrique so the oak was refined and not obtrusive in the wine. He was also the first to bottle a Cru, single vineyard, Brunello, from Montosoli one of the greats. Today’s offer is for the 2015 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli. This is always a great wine. In the perfect 2015 vintage it is outstanding. All the rich Montosoli fruit and flowers are here along with a perfectly balancing acidity and integrated tannins for a long life.
