Tuscany is the beating heartland of Italy’s wine culture. With a history which stretches back through the centuries to pre-Roman times, and a reputation for excellence which is known throughout the world, it truly is the spiritual home of fine Italian wine. Blending tradition with modernity, reverence for native grape varietals with an openness to new ideas and imported vines, Tuscan winemakers have been writing and rewriting the rules for much of the last century, with the aim of achieving true excellence in viticulture. One winery which stands out in Tuscany is Altesino, a beautiful estate in Montalcino which is dominated by a 14th century palace, and which is home to some of Tuscany’s finest wines. Altesino was bought in 2002 by Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini, the owner of Tenuto Carpazo, with the intention of bringing it into the twenty first century and redefining Montalcino wines for a global audience. The winery enjoys some of the finest terroir in all of Italy, with the gentle slopes of Montalcino, the mineral rich soils and long ripening season all ideal for quality viticulture, with plenty of expression and interesting features coming across in the fruit.

Today, the winery is managed by Simone Giunti and Alessandro Ciacci - two talented and dedicated vintners - who, with the expert guidance of Angelini, are impressing the world with the flawless quality of their characterful red wines. The winery specializes in Brunello di Montalcino, but unlike other wineries in the area, Altesino’s team decided to limit the amount of time the wine spent in contact with the oak, instead focusing on bringing forward the fruit flavors and fresh, ripe characteristics of the grape. The idea was to aim for elegance, finesse and expression of terroir through the fruit, by utilising a range of traditional and modern techniques.The decision was clearly the right one, as the popularity of Altesino’s Brunello di Montalcino has only grown and grown, allowing the winery to expand its repertoire and continue experimenting with what their vines can do.
