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.

“This has fantastic intensity with concentrated hazelnut, chocolate and dark berry aromas alongside dried flower and dried orange undertones. Firm and medium- to full-bodied, with powerful yet integrated tannins. Excellent structural integrity. Try in 2024.” 95 points, James Suckling, December 2022

“This 2018 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino has an attractive, spicy, strawberry and black pepper nose with a little hint of fresh earth and iron. These mineral notes are often a distinctive characteristic of Altesino as a producer, and their northerly terroir. What is striking about this wine is that it has a much longer finish and more depth and range of flavors than many other 2018s. There is a definite shape to the wine, with a beginning, a middle and an end. It ends with a very long and lingering finish. A characterful and distinctive style of Brunello.” 95 points, Susan Hulme MW, Wine Independent, February 2023

“With vineyards throughout Montalcino, Altesino started harvest at the beginning of September with its southernmost holdings. After rain mid-month, the estate continued with plots in the north. The resulting wine is light yet bright in colour with an immediately attractive nose of raspberry and tarragon. Linear and direct, the chiselled palate offers mineral intrigue with an expansive juiciness. Dainty tannins are almost an afterthought, but acidity will carry this midweight, balanced charmer.”
