A stalwart of Montalcino, Altesino was a significant influence in developing the region and its iconic style of wine, from the development of its Cru system to experimentation with the use of barriques. Aromas of wild strawberries, ripe cherries, pot-pourri and herbs show in this wine, with firm tannins and brisk acidity on the palate. It will benefit from time in the decanter before drinking, to allow the flavours to fully develop. Enjoy now until around 2033.
Food Pairing: Spaghetti bolognese
