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

A fresh red with plenty of dried cherry and blackberry character and hints of vanilla. Full-bodied, with loads of silky tannins and a wonderfully long finish of fruit and tannins. A beautiful wine. Best after 2005. 1,420... A fresh red with plenty of dried cherry and blackberry character and hints of vanilla.
