Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2013 Rosso di Montalcino makes few promises but does deliver on its basic pledge to provide easy-drinking pleasure. The Rosso opens to tight aromas of white cherry, forest fruit, blanched almond and light shadings of spice and tobacco. The color, concentration and mouthfeel are moderate in intensity, but there is enough fresh acidity to pair with smoked sausage flatbread. This Tuscany red shows a great deal of inner energy and verve. (Feb 2015)

Wine maker notes
Altesino makes this Rosso di Montalcino entirely from select Sangiovese Grosso grapes sourced from the younger vines in the Altesino, Pianezzine, Macina, and Castelnuovo dell’Abate vineyards. After the fermentation process in stainless steel, the wine ages in large barrels of varied maturity for six to eight months followed by three months in bottle. The final wine is a perfect and accessible introduction to the terroir of Montalcino.

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.
