Altesino’s fascinating ageing cellars are situated within the historic walls of Palazzo Altesi, while advanced technical facilities for processes such as fermentation, ageing and bottling are located in a building set into the side of the hill overlooking the vineyards. Altesino has always been dedicated to producing top quality wines, which is why so much attention is devoted to every single detail at every stage in production, marketing, communications and image.

    Wine review by Americo Valdes


  • Altesino Rosso di Montalcino 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Blackberry flavors. Thin feeling. Not bad, but I have had better at this price point. A little too much of an alcohol taste. Drink the day you open it. Not so good the second day. Read More

  • Altesino Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli 1999

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed a dark shade of ripe strawberry in moist earth with tobacco and leather. On the palate it was medium-bodied and silky with a core of acidity ushering in red fruits, dried cinnamon and rocky minerals. A hint of structure lingered on the finish with dried red fruits and hints of spice. Read More

  • A friend and I had a regions-of-the-world tasting, and we had a Brunello that we loved (Nardi 2003).  I paid about $37 for it, but it was on sale and is more like $60-$80.  My friend has been learning more about wine recently, and was really ecstatic about this bottle.  I told her that she has expensive taste and she's going to have to spend abo...

  • Altesino Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Rosso di Altesino 2008

    Snoothrank:

    If I was blindfolded, I would have thought this was a cherry lollipop. On the palate I found raspberry and ginger which led to a hollow and short finish. Too bad. Read More
