Description

The refinement and aromatic expression of a fine Tuscan red wine

The estate

Located in the heart of southern Tuscany, Altesino is an estate whose exceptional terroir was designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2004.

With its high regard for the vines and the surrounding nature, this estate excels in the production of fine Brunello di Montalcino DOCG wines, one of the main appellations in Italy. A forerunner, the Altesino estate introduced two major innovations within the appellation, the concept of "cru" in 1975 and barrel vinification in 1979.

Paying close attention to the terroir, rigour and diligence both in the vineyard and during vinification are the keystones of this estate. Spread over 80 hectares, 44 of which are vineyards, the estate is renowned for its high quality wines.

The wine

The Brunello di Montalcino by the Altesino estate has been produced since 1972.

The vinification and ageing

Following a minimum of 2 years' ageing in oak barrels, the intricate production of this Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2017 is followed by at least 4 months' ageing in bottles before being put on the market.

The blend

Sangiovese (100%).
