Altesino’s fascinating ageing cellars are situated within the historic walls of Palazzo Altesi, while advanced technical facilities for processes such as fermentation, ageing and bottling are located in a building set into the side of the hill overlooking the vineyards. Altesino has always been dedicated to producing top quality wines, which is why so much attention is devoted to every single detail at every stage in production, marketing, communications and image.

  • Altesino Rosso di Montalcino 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A very unusual nose, both bitter and herbal as well as creamy and buttery. Coffee, licorice and brewed tea come to the fore with air. Smooth in the mouth with black spiced berry fruit that is tight but simple. Shows pretty good length but nothing standouts. Pleasant and ordinary. 85pts Read More

  • Altesino Rosso di Altesino 2010

    Snoothrank:

    From a well known Brunello producer, this is their "Super-Tuscan" red. The nose starts off with some bite, and a little acridity, although not unpleasantly so. There's plenty of dark fruit there as well, primarily blackberry, with a little violet, and firm flinty notes underneath. The palate presents with a smooth texture, and pleasing fragrant ...

  • Altesino Rosso di Montalcino 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Blackberry flavors. Thin feeling. Not bad, but I have had better at this price point. A little too much of an alcohol taste. Drink the day you open it. Not so good the second day. Read More

    Wine review by calywa


  • Altesino Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli 1999

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed a dark shade of ripe strawberry in moist earth with tobacco and leather. On the palate it was medium-bodied and silky with a core of acidity ushering in red fruits, dried cinnamon and rocky minerals. A hint of structure lingered on the finish with dried red fruits and hints of spice. Read More
