Tasting Notes: Dark Cherry, Wild Berry, Plum, Leather
Amid the eastern hills of Montalcino near Siena in central Tuscany, stands the magnificently elegant 14th century-built Palazzo Altesi, home to the Altesino winery. The stunning Palazzo Altesi beautifully reflects Altesino’s charm and refinement.
Altesino makes this Rosso di Montalcino entirely from select Sangiovese Grosso grapes sourced from the younger vines in the Altesino and Velona estate vineyards that are also used to make the Brunello. The fruit is generous and the large barrels used for aging add to the character without overwhelming the wine.
