Altesino Rosso di Montalcinotext

Altesino Rosso di Montalcino 2016

Tuscany, ItalySimplicity can be strangely sophisticated when you pull it off. In the case of this rosso, the fruit is all sangiovese that is only aged for seven months in Slavonian oak barrels followed by three months in bottle before heading to the market three full years before its big brother Brunello will arrive. Light-ish in colour and alcohol, Altesino is about elegance and red and black fruits, harmony and drinkability in a fresh, mouthwatering style that complements a wide variety of foods. A classic Euro luncheon wine you can serve with creamy pasta dishes, roasted chicken, barbecued sausages and or pizza. Ready to drink.
