Altesino was established in 1970 and have been one of the most innovative producers in the area. Their wines include two Brunello di Montalcini, a regular cuvee and the super single-site "Montosoli". Both have received terrific reviews for 2006. They also produce a range of impressive less serious red wines, a high rating Vin Santo, Grappa di Brunello and a top Olive Oil.
Until midnight 25 June 2012 you can save 25% on all Altesino wines.
This includes the spectacular Brunello "Montosoli" and the already keenly priced Rosso Toscana.
The Rosso Toscana is a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged 6-8 months in stainless steel tanks and 3 months in French barriques. The quality of this wine was one of the reasons I opted for Altesino. This is a terrific drink with lovely fruit and enough character to place it above the pack. It is nomally priced at $33.00 but order on line this weekend and pay just $24.75 a bottle!
