Altesino is a leader in various, important innovations in the production of Sangiovese from Montalcino, causing it to stand out and become a reference point for the entire territory.

Some of the positive contributions putting Montalcino on the world map are: the introduction of the "Cru" (Montosoli) concept in 1975, the production in '77 of the first Grappa from a winery and the first Futures (purchasing wine before its release) for Brunello 1985.

We organize wine tastings and the visit are made under appointment preferably.

We visited Altesino in May, and had a wonderful time! The tour we received was very educating, leaving nothing to the imagination. This all surrounded by the most beautiful area of Tuscany. After a small tour around the vinyard and winery, we got to taste the best of wines (5, 1 white, 4 red). Accompanied with very delicious food/antipasti (all... More

Here we tasted Brunello di Montalcino. Very impressive wine: a lot of shades of taste, aftertaste and colors. I'm agree with Wine Spectator, that gave 96 points to this wine. The service was excellent and the wine was one of the best, that I ever tasted.

While attending classes to learn about wine, I enjoyed a bottle from this estate. As we were traveling to Tuscany and planning to spend a day wine tasting in Montalcino, we decided to schedule a visit to this estate. As with all the estates we visited in Tuscany, we email ahead of time to set up appointments. The staff here... More

We visited the winery and were given a tour. Interesting but not spectacular. If you have visited wineries before then this is nothing new or special. The tour was follow by a wine tasting. We were offered 4 wines overall - maybe 60ml each time (2 ounces), hence 240ml or 8 ounces in total - in a restaurant that would... More

Gorgeous location and an excellent tour from the very gracious and knowledgeable Giulia. The outstanding wines were accompanied by an excellent antipasto spread. This was our best winery visit in Tuscany. We were pleased to learn we could purchase the wines at lower prices than in the United States and ship them back at a reasonable cost. Well worth the...

Private tour and wine tasting was set up by our B&B, and it was great. Tour was interesting, and we learned a lot about Super Tuscans and Brunello. Tasting included a light lunch which was also tasty. Their 2011 Brunello is a nice wine and is considerably less expensive at the winery (27 euros/bottle) than at Montalcino wine stores (between...

We went here based on recomendation of our driver. Location is one of the best we saw so far. We didn't have reservation so we had to wait for a short wine tasting. Staff was so nice and pleasant. Wines were great! One of the best we tried in the area.
