Description

An Italian red wine with wonderful vivacity and balance

The estate

With its centuries-old history, the Altesino estate is located in the picturesque region of Tuscany, in the heart of Italy. Adored for its rolling hills, historic vineyards and medieval towns, Tuscany is one of the world's most renowned wine-growing regions. Altesino, whose origins date back to the 16th century, is one of the jewels in the crown of this region, contributing to the development of Brunello di Montalcino, a wine that today ranks among the most sought-after in Italy. The Altesino story is one of a relentless pursuit of excellence, combining respect for tradition with technical innovation to produce wines of exceptional quality every vintage.

The vineyard

This Brunello Montalcino Montosoli 2016 is a Tuscan wine from the 5-hectare vineyard of marl-limestone soils nestling on the slopes of Montalcino. The region, with its ideal Mediterranean climate, offers perfect conditions for the development of the Sangiovese grape variety, the only one permitted for the production of Brunello di Montalcino. The grapes ripen slowly in the generous Tuscan sunshine, acquiring a unique aromatic complexity while retaining a remarkable freshness. The topography of the land, sustainable viticulture methods and respect for biodiversity make Altesino a model of harmony between mankind and nature.

Winemaking and ageing

Aged for a minimum of two years in Slovenian oak barrels and 4 months in barriques. Aged in bottle for 4 months.
