Raspberry, cherry, mineral and spice flavors highlight this elegant, vibrant red. The pure fruit is offset by a refined structure and equally fine, athletic tannins. A sense of energy drives the long, mineral-tinged finish. A wine of finesse and power. Best from 2016 through 2032. 360 cases imported. –BS
The polished tannins are supported by a mineral underpinning – entirely approachable now, but built to age.
A modern style of Brunello, Altero is aged two years in 500 liter French oak tonneaux and two years in bottle before release. A beautiful effort, this wine offers quintessential notes of black cherry, violets, brambles and earth in a highly elegant and nuanced style.
