Altesino Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli 2014

One of the most sought-after wines from Montalcino, Montosoli is consistently a blockbuster Sangiovese. Though the worldwide reputation of Brunello has encouraged some conservatism among Montalcino estates, Altesino has always been a leader, unafraid of innovation. The estate pioneered the technique of aging its IGT wines in small French oak barrels, limiting the time spent in oak to enhance each wine’s personality. The resulting wines were a groundbreaking improvement over those produced by traditional methods. No longer overwhelmed by wood, they were able to display the unique characteristics of the fruit, with softened tannins and perfect balance

WINEMAKER NOTES

Altesino

by Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini

The 2014 vintage displays aromas of forest floor, hazelnut, exotic spice and dark-skinned fruit mingle with a whiff of damp earth. Extremely enticing, opulent and elegant on the palate, polished tannins and bright acidity are framing a long-lasting finish. This is definitely a wine for special occasions
