The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Altero is powerful and intense in aroma and flavor well endowed with liquorice and tar in addition to its plum fruit sizeable and weighty on the palate and with a chewy texture and important intensity on the close. It will still be drinking well in 2020. Importer: Empson USA Alexandria VA; tel. (703) 684-0900

Saturated ruby. Explosive aromas of fraise des bois, coffee, smoke, truffle, woodsmoke and earth; reminded me of Clos de la Roche. Very dense, broad and supple, with Burgundian notes of underbrush, truffle and flowers... Saturated ruby. Explosive aromas of fraise des bois, coffee, smoke, truffle, woodsmoke and earth; reminded me of Clos de la Roche. Very dense, broad and supple, with Burgundian notes of underbrush, truffle and flowers. Finishes with big, broad, tongue-dusting tannins and superb length. This is denser and more muscular than this winery's "regular" bottling, but shows less early sweetness and a bit less finesse and complexity today. 93+

Subtle aromas, with blackberry, dried flowers, dark chocolate and coffee. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins, ripe fruit and a balance of fruit and good acidity. Just coming around now.—'99 Brunello blind retrospective... Subtle aromas, with blackberry, dried flowers, dark chocolate and coffee.
