James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, January 2012
This is the best wine ever from Poggio Antico. Aromas of blackberries and flowers follow through to a full body with ultra-fine tannins and a polished tannin mouth-feel. This is really structured yet elegant. Wonderful... This is the best wine ever from Poggio Antico. Aromas of blackberries and flowers follow through to a full body with ultra-fine tannins and a polished tannin mouth-feel. This is really structured yet elegant. Wonderful purity. Better in 2014 but who can wait?

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Altero is a gorgeous sleek wine laced with dark red cherries kirsch menthol pine and spices. Sweet floral notes wrap around the silky finish. The 2007 stands out for its finessed texture... The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Altero is a gorgeous sleek wine laced with dark red cherries kirsch menthol pine and spices. Sweet floral notes wrap around the silky finish. The 2007 stands out for its finessed texture and impeccable overall balance. I can't remember a more polished elegant vintage of Altero. Poggio Antico hit it out of the park. The 2007 spent 24 months in 500-liter French oak tonneaux. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. --- Antonio Galloni

Good full red. Very pure but subdued aromas of raspberry rose petal and spices along with a suggestion of chocolate. Then almost surprisingly plush and sensual on the palate and distinctly sweeter than the 2007 classico... Good full red. Very pure but subdued aromas of raspberry rose petal and spices along with a suggestion of chocolate. Then almost surprisingly plush and sensual on the palate and distinctly sweeter than the 2007 classico showing a flavor of cherry liqueur. Extract-rich and dense in texture without betraying any heaviness. Finishes with excellent spine and thrust and good medicinal reserve. This will need time to absorb its serious dusting of tannins.

Pretty ensemble of bright fruit, spice and cured meat, with ample concentration. Plump and round in the mouth, with loads of aromatic intensity. The mouthfeel is tight and chiseled.

A tightly wound, cherry- and currant-laced red, with accents of mint, herbs and wild macchia. A powerful wine, with dense, dry tannins on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2027. – BS
