95 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012
Good full, bright red. Very pure but subdued nose hints at raspberry, high-pitched spices and blood orange. Tactile, suave and deep, with ripe but firm raspberry and cherry fruit flavors complemented by saline minerality, leather and a strong floral quality that mounts inexorably on the back end. Tighter and higher-pitched than Altesino's two 2007 releases--no surprise in light of the different styles of these two vintage. Really resounds on the aromatic aftertaste. This wine showed even deeper red fruits and spices with extended time in the recorked bottle, combining almost Burgundian perfume with Brunello tannins and structure.
