Altesino is a pioneer in the production of Montalcino Sangiovese characterized by balance, finesse, and intensity. This wine brings together fruit from the vineyards of Altesino, Macina, Pianezzine, and Castelnuovo dell’Abate in the Val d’Arbia DOC. First produced in 1972, the wine traditionally ages for at least four years prior to release: a minimum of two years in oak barrels, four months maturation in bottle.

Brilliant ruby-red, tending toward garnet red with age, this Brunello has an intense, pure bouquet of sweet violets, tobacco, chocolate, wild berries, and vanilla. The palate confirms the nose, yielding a full, well-balanced wine with firm tannins and nicely-defined structure.

“Bold cherry, dried raspberry and myrtle add to the intensity and the brightness of the bouquet. The Altesino 2016 Brunello di Montalcino displays a lively and fruit-forward ensemble with an infectious and cheerful sense of energy. This is a tonic and crisp expression of Sangiovese with lifted berry aromas backed by subtle spice, tar and licorice gained over two years of barrel aging. This is a 110,000-bottle release (and a good buy for Brunello).”
95+ points, Wine Advocate, Nov 2020

“The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino has remarkably consistent integration from the nose to the palate. There are generous aromatics of fresh raspberry, rosemary, lavender and Mediterranean herbs. The palate opens up with ripe and inviting cherry fruit and tea leaf, with supple tannin and freshness on the finish. Its drinkability now should not be confused for a lack of structure, as it is true to the energetic nature of the vintage. Drink 2021-2036.”
