Wine maker notes
Named after the main villa at Altesino, this is a modern take on a Tuscan classic. Made entirely from Sangiovese grapes that are hand-selected from the prestigious Montosoli vineyard. One third of the grapes undergoes carbonic maceration and the entire batch is then fermented in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks. To provide additional elegance, Palazzo Altesi is aged in Allier barriques for approximately one year.

Near the end of 2002, Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini, owner of nearby Tenuta Caparzo, purchased the Altesino winery. Winemaker Claudio Basla remained with the estate, emphasizing his commitment to maintaining Altesino”s hard-earned reputation as a Montalcino institution and a global leader in innovative winemaking.
