Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Produced using 100% Sangiovese di Montalcino grapes and refined in Slavonian oak barrels for eight months, it is placed on the market after a minimum of one year from the harvest. A brilliant ruby red colour with a persistent bouquet of fresh fruit and wild berries. It is well-balanced on the palate, with delicately structured flavours of cherry, plum and berries.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) The 2011 Altesino Rosso di Montalcino bringas aromas and flavors of dried berries, herbs, smoke and mineral. The medium body is wrapped in soft tannins. Finish is silky, but with a touch of heat.
