Tasting Notes


Dark ruby and red color. Blackberry, licorice and grilled meat aromas. Full-bodied, with layers of beautiful tannins and fresh ripe fruit and sliced mushroom. Very, very long. So powerful and rich, yet racy and beautiful. Still needs some time.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Best after 2010.

The Winery


Located within the historic walls of Palazzo Altesi in the heart of Southern Tuscany, Altesino is a global leader in innovative winemaking focusing on Sangiovese. The prestigious Brunello di Montalcino producer’s estate covers approximately 80 hectares. In 1975, they launched the introduction of the “Cru” in the Montalcino region and now have 44 hectares of vineyards sub-divided into “Crus” of Altesino— Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Macina, Pianezzine, and Montosoli. With its 1985 vintage, Altesino pioneered the concept of Brunello futures—wine purchased before its release.

Altesino takes pride in striving for nothing less than producing high quality wines during each stage of production. Aside from being a top producer of Brunello, their portfolio extends to modern wines including Alte d’Altesi, Palazzo Altesi and Rosso di Altesino.
