Altesino Rosso di Montalcinotext

Altesino Rosso di Montalcino 2020

Tuscany, ItalyAltesino Rosso is exclusively made with sangiovese di Montalcino grapes before ageing in Slavonian oak barrels for eight months, then a year bottle at a minimum. Light, breezy cherry and berry lead the way before the darker plum and earthy dried herb move in mid-palate. Fragrant, accessible and with bright acidity, it is a terrific wine for meaty or mushroom pasta dishes or grilled chicken off the barbecue—good value and authenticity. It is baby Brunello at its best.Tasted: 14 March 2023Tasted by: Prices:
