Overview
More
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.

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...More
