Altesino is a reference point producer in Brunello di Montalcino, sought after in every vintage, especially in the top vintages. As region innovators, they introduced the 'Cru' concept with their 'Montosoli' wine in 1975; they also were the first to experiment with barriques in '79; and produced in '77 of the first Grappa di Fattoria under the consultancy of the master distiller Gioacchino Nannoni. An intense relationship has built up over forty years with the land full of history, with its almost sensual beauty that is physically perceived and its subtle charm. This is the philosophy that inspires Altesino to produce wine and maintain its culture.

Laced with ripe cherry, strawberry, floral, spice, iron and leather flavors, this red is complex and charming, yet with serious tannins that ply the structure and lift the long finish. The fine balance should facilitate longevity. Best from 2024 through 2048. 1,600 cases made.

The Altesino 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (with 10,000 bottles made) shows a tight and firm delivery with the abundant fruit and the generous richness that is associated with this warm and sunny vintage. The wine is fermented in steel vats and ages in Slavonian oak casks for three years. The tannins are nicely integrated, however the wine's solid structure will carry it forward over the years.
