The estate is considered one of the most innovative wineries in the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG area. 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

Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini

Altesino

by Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini
Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2010 is produced from 100% Sangiovese grapes, and aged for a minimum of 4 years, with two years in oak barrels. Brilliant ruby-red, tending toward garnet red with age, this Brunello has an intense, pure bouquet of sweet violets, tobacco, chocolate, wild berries, and vanilla. The palate confirms the nose, yielding a full, well-balanced wine with firm tannins and nicely-defined structure
