Full of sweet cherry and berry fruit, this red also reveals leather, earth and mineral flavors. Fresh and harmonious, leaving a lasting impression of fruit, mineral and tobacco notes. Drink now through 2023.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 90 points
The Altesino 2016 Rosso di Montalcino offers a smooth and steady ride with plenty of primary fruit at the front. Bright cherry, cassis and blueberry aromas rise to the top, followed by mild tones of grilled spice and pressed rose petal. This is a compact red wine that cleans the palate thanks to its tonic acidity and fresh berry flavors.
