Overview
More
Altesino is a leader in various, important innovations in the production of Sangiovese from Montalcino, causing it to stand out and become a reference point for the entire territory. Some of the positive contributions putting Montalcino on the world map are: the introduction of the "Cru" (Montosoli) concept in 1975, the production in '77 of the first Grappa from a winery and the first Futures (purchasing wine before its release) for Brunello 1985. We organize wine tastings and the visit are made under appointment preferably.

Detailed tour, friendly guide speaking good English and happy to answer an infinite wave of questions. Wines are good, and reasonably priced as for Montalcino classics (especially the Vin Santo is worth the price). The property itself is beautifully located in a small hill, overlooking...More

We traveled to Montalcino in March - the off season - and were the only ones on the property for our tasting of 5 wines. Our hostess took her time with us and allowed us to really savor the experience. We ordered 3 bottles to...More

Had a bottle of Altesino in Houston just before we left for Italy. Loved it so much we decided to stop the winery while we were in Tuscany. Best decision, ever! Great wine and affordable shipping for cases.

Beautiful vineyard with an amazing tour guide. The wines are beautiful representations of brunello di Montalcino. If they are still selling the 2012 Single Vineyard brunello I highly recommend going home with a bottle or three.

We loved this winery! I have to comment to start though - not sure what the previous reviewer commenting about a hazarous road is talking about. That review made me think twice about booking this tour and tasting and I'm so glad I ignored it...More

This is a well run beautiful winery with spectacular views and lovely Brunello wine. However. The road to access the estate is unpaved and is quite hazardous. We drove over a rock based 'speed bump' obscurely placed by - we were told - a difficult...More
