Heiner Lobenberg über:
Brunello di Montalcino 2016


Lobenberg: Altesinos Brunello ist das, was man einen archetypischen Brunello nennen kann. Wunderbar rotbeerige, volle und süße Düfte in der Nase, üppig, beerig und süß auch am Gaumen, dabei untermalt von Lakritz-Aromen und feinen Tanninen. Sangiovese Grosso mit der Fülle, die es so nur in Montalcino gibt, alle Bitternis und Herbheit der Rebe im Chianti, alle Bäuerlichkeit in Montepulciano kulminiert hier im Süden Montalcinos zu burgundischem Charme und Schmelz. Gevrey Chambertin aus der Toskana und kein Erzeuger ist so verlässlich und beständig wie Altesino. Erotik pur, reiner Hedonismus. 94+/100


International Wine Report über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- International Wine Report: Delicato rivela la propria essenza nei tratti floreali di ibisco, agapanto, gerani in fiore ed ortensie. In sottofondo la maturità si mette in luce nelle note gentili di ciliegie e petali di rosa. Corpo medio-pieno, tannini setosi ed un finale compresso di brillante vivacità. Meglio dal 2021. 96/100


Parker über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Parker: Bold cherry, dried raspberry and myrtle add to the intensity and the brightness of the bouquet. The Altesino 2016 Brunello di Montalcino displays a lively and fruit-forward ensemble with an infectious and cheerful sense of energy. This is a tonic and crisp expression of Sangiovese with lifted berry aromas backed by subtle spice, tar and licorice gained over two years of barrel aging. This is a 110,000-bottle release (and a good buy for Brunello). 95+/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino has remarkably consistent integration from the nose to the palate. There are generous aromatics of fresh raspberry, rosemary, lavender and Mediterranean herbs. The palate opens up with ripe and inviting cherry fruit and tea leaf, with supple tannin and freshness on the finish. Its drinkability now should not be confused for a lack of structure, as it is true to the energetic nature of the vintage. Drink 2021-2036. 95+/100


Suckling über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Suckling: Fresh violet, forest-floor and some pear-skin aromas, underneath brambleberries. Fresher style of Brunello. It's medium-bodied with silky tannins and a great balance between fresh-fruit and forest flavors. Drink after 2023. 95/100


Winespectator über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Winespectator: Balsamic aromas of wild thyme, juniper, eucalyptus and pine lead off, with cherry and plum fruit at the core. There’s latent energy that’s restrained for now by the grip of tannins, yet this is lithe and nimble despite the solid structure. Best from 2024 through 2045. 95/100


Galloni über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Galloni: Remarkably pretty and poised yet packed full of potential, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino lifts with grace and elegance, showing dusty roses, wild strawberry, white smoke and hints of wet stone. It’s silky and refined, with cooling acids and minerals giving way to savory red berries and spice. Energy remains high, even as fine tannins create a classically dry and youthful expression, tapering off to violet florals, mocha and a hint of licorice that seems to linger for well over a minute. This is deceptively drinkable today, yet it has all of the necessary components to gain in weight and complexity over a decade or more of cellaring. 94/100
