Altesino Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Rosso di Altesino 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

An elegant, seductive blend of plum confiture, roasted chestnuts and truffle-scented earthiness, supported by caressing tannins. This offering admirably expresses the terroir of the Montosoli vineyard on the northern slopes below the town of Montalcino. Dark ruby color. Operned and decanted for 30 minutes. Great fruit,rich, earthy taste. Fantastic wine.
