Grape varieties: Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Fermentation: Traditional. Aroma: Extremely fresh, with hints of violets and wild berries. Palate: Dry, sapid and clean, with persuasive drinkability. This is the company’s ‘everyday wine’, an idea conceived by Altesino with the 1989 harvest and now adopted by many other winemakers. This wine is inviting, with a brilliant ruby red colour, fresh, captivating and fragrant bouquet and a dry, flavoursome and pure taste. In the heart of southern Tuscany, forty kilometers south of the City of Siena, far from heavy traffic routes and the main industrial areas, the landscape of Montalcino has remained unchanged and mostly wild. The area where the wines of Montalcino are produced coincides with the historical borders of the Municipality of Montalcino. From its emphasis on traditional methods of agriculture, the careful hand selction of the grapes, to the rose bushes wich overlook each of the vines Altesino firmly maintains its control over quality, principle that governs every aspect of life and work at the estate. The company’s philosophy has always been to create high quality wines and this is why so much attention is devoted to every single detail, not only at each stage of production, but also to their marketing, including communications and image.
