A fine expression of place, this intense red exhibits wild underbrush, iron and raw meat notes complemented by cherry, raspberry and leather. There’s a firm backbone of acidity and tannins, but this stays balanced, with a long aftertaste of mineral and spice. Best from 2014 through 2030.
Complex aromas of dried mushrooms, flowers and dark fruits follow though to a full body with fine tannins and a chocolate, dried meat and dark fruit aftertaste. Wonderful depth of fruit and balance. Drink now.
Located within the historic walls of Palazzo Altesi in the heart of Southern Tuscany, Altesino is a global leader in innovative winemaking focusing on Sangiovese. The prestigious Brunello di Montalcino producer’s estate covers approximately 80 hectares. In 1975, they launched the introduction of the “Cru” in the Montalcino region and now have 44 hectares of vineyards sub-divided into “Crus” of Altesino— Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Macina, Pianezzine, and Montosoli. With its 1985 vintage, Altesino pioneered the concept of Brunello futures—wine purchased before its release.
Altesino takes pride in striving for nothing less than producing high quality wines during each stage of production. Aside from being a top producer of Brunello, their portfolio extends to modern wines including Alte d’Altesi, Palazzo Altesi and Rosso di Altesino.
