Altesino has long been revered for its single vineyard stunner, Montosoli. That wine launched a wave of interest in the microterroirs of Montalcino, with many houses designating their own single vineyard wines and paying special attention to elevation, soil type, and aspect. Altesino's Riserva release is arguably an even rarer beast, made only in choice years (only three vintages have been made in the past decade) from a blend of parcels across the region. In the 2015, fruit from Monstosoli and Altesino's northern holdings lend snappy, ethereal red fruit and notes of fresh cut thyme to structured and powerful wine from Castelnuovo dell'Abate's warmer southeastern facing vineyards. Few wines we've tasted can balance this much weight with such a confident a sense of elegance. In the winery, 4 years in large format Slavonian oak maintain the wine's rusticity and add yet one more layer of smoke, turned soil and dried cremini. It's a wine of dizzying complexity that rewards opening now or long-term ageing.
