The attractive price and Brunello heritage have always made us refer to this wine as a “Baby Brunello”. (And this baby’s got roots. Altesino is a pioneering winery: the first to introduce the “Cru” concept with their “Montosoli” in 1975, the first to experiment with barriques in 1979, and the first to release Brunello futures in 1985.)┬áIt is notably sophisticated for what is ostensibly a table wine, with plenty of morello cherry fruit mingling with old leather. Perfect with roasted or grilled meat. Strikingly good value.

 

The wine is predominantly Sangiovese, with a dash of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that add plush fruit and structure. Cold-soaked and fermented in stainless steel, then aged up to eight months in tank and three months in bottle.

$23.99 (per 750ml bottle) - sold in cases of 12 bottles
