Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Altesino Rosso di Montalcinotext

Altesino Rosso di Montalcino 2018

Tuscany, ItalyIn the case of the Altesino 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. Bright red, the nose is wild and fresh with earthy scents of wild berries and cedar, and the palate is a mix of ripe plums and dark cherries with bright acidity and tame tannins. Simple but sophisticated is my take, with the always present elegance of Altesino. A classic Euro luncheon wine that is ready to drink.Tasted: 26 March 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
