"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli possesses gorgeous textural depth and resonance, both in the classic, mid-weight style of the year. Sweet red cherry, plum, tobacco, spice and savory herb overtones flesh out as the 2010 Montosoli shows off its distinctive personality. Finessed, silky tannins round out a finish laced with rose petal, cherry pit and pipe tobacco."  95 Antonio Galloni

"Montosoli enthusiasts will not be disappointed by the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli. This special single-vineyard expression shows a beautifully fragrant and floral bouquet that is exactly in line with what this firmly consistent producer strives to achieve. This wine represents one of the most distinctive expressions of varietal voice and that's what makes it so precious and rare. Sangiovese sings loud with small berry nuances and loud floral impressions of rose, violet and lavender. Its underlying complexity is further enhanced by anise seed, cola and licorice stick. The wine's texture is soothing soft and silky. This is one for your cellars to age ten years or more." 96 Monica Larner

"Guido Orzalesi's Altesino has reached a new level of excellence in 2010. The wines of this historic estate have long been recognized for their extreme elegance and finesse. The excellent conditions of the vintage have conspired to bring even more distinction to the estate. Altesino's Ace card is its land. The estate owns some of the most spectacular vineyard sites in the appellation including the legendary Montosoli cru. Thanks to the optimal growing conditions, the estate's fruit is more expressive than I have ever tasted." ML
