Located in the heart of southern Tuscany, Altesino is an estate whose exceptional terroir was designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2004.
With its high regard for the vines and the surrounding nature, this estate excels in the production of fine Rosso di Montalcino and Brunello di Montalcino. A forerunner, the Altesino estate introduced two major innovations within the appellation, the concept of "cru" in 1975 and barrel vinification in 1979.
Paying close attention to the terroir, rigour and diligence both in the vineyard and during vinification are the keystones of this estate. Spread over 80 hectares, 44 of which are vineyards, the estate is renowned for its high quality wines.
This 2019 Rosso di Montalcino by Altesino has been produced since 1973.
Clear, with an intense ruby red colour.
Elegant and fragrant, the nose gives off delicious fruity aromas.
Harmonious, this wine seduces the palate due to its structure, its velvety feel and its persistent finish.
Food and wine pairing
Altesino's 2019 Rosso di Montalcino will pair with red meats and stews beautifully.

This red wine from Tuscany can be cellared until around 2029 which will enable it to express its full range of aromas.
