About the winery:
Altesino is situated North-East of Montalcino and covers an area of approximately 64 hectares. The vineyards cover an area of approximately 27 hectares which are divided into three different sub zones called Altesino, La Velona and Montosoli (the last mentioned has always been famous for producing extremely elegant wines).
Besides the grape variety Sangiovese di Montalcino, which makes up the largest part of the vineyards (it is used for Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino and Palazzo Altesi), Altesino also grows Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot (used in blend with Sangiovese di Montalcino for Alte d’Altesi), Chardonnay, Trebbiano and Malvasia (used in Bianco Altesino and Vin Santo).
Altesino has always been determined to produce wines of the highest quality possible and therefore the aging requirements for Brunello di Montalcino have been even more stressed in the Altesino cellars. While maintaining a strong belief in the strict traditions behind the production of Brunello, Altesino’s managing director and wine maker Claudio Basla has undertaken several years of experimentation in the cellar by using French oak and blending different varieties of grapes which led to innovative wines like Alte d'Altesi, Palazzo Altesi and Rosso di Altesino.
