A delightfully honest and straightforward interpretation of Sangiovese, it is well-balanced on the palate, with delicately structured flavours of dried cherry and redcurrant, but there are some slightly evolved tones of spice and dried clay.
Producer Information: Altesino
A leader in various important innovations in the production of Sangiovese from Montalcino, causing it to stand out and become a reference point for the entire territory. Some of the positive contributions putting Montalcino on the world map were the introduction of the "Cru" (Montosoli) concept in 1975, the first experiments with barriques in 1979, the production in 1977 of the first Grappa from a winery and the first Futures (purchasing wine before its release) for Brunello 1985. Over the last forty years an intense relationship has been developed with the land and the Altesino philosophy has always been to produce high quality wines that convey this history.
