Societa Agricola Altesino is a leading estate in Montalcino, Tuscany, particularly known for its Brunello wines. Its Montosoli expression was one of the first “cru” (single-vineyard) wines released in Italy when it was introduced in 1975.
The company produces a range of wines. The generic Brunello di Montalcino is aged for four years with a minimum of two years in large Slavonian oak casks, with five and three years for the Riserva. Montosoli has at least two years in casks plus three to four months in French barriques and four years in total. The Rosso di Montalcino receives eight months in Slavonian oak. Palazzo Altese IGT Toscana is 100-percent Sangiovese, made with partial carbonic maceration.
