Altesino Rosso di Montalcinotext

Altesino Rosso di Montalcino 2020

Tuscany, ItalyWhen you ask winemakers in Montalcino what they drink, expecting them to bathe in Brunello, overwhelmingly, their daily wine is Rosso di Montalcino. From the same brilliant soils and climate but typically younger or declassified Brunello grapes, the Rosso is primed for daily consumption and can still age. From the generous 2020 vintage, this Rosso is showing the effects of the sun, with worn leather, baked cherries, brown spices, and a telling 14.5% working the palate through a saline finish. I'd watch for a fresher vintage or enjoy this now with roast beef or lamb.Tasted: 01 September 2023Tasted by: Prices:
