"Pure, precise aromas and flavors of strawberry and red plum with spicy nuances. Fruity, fresh and fun - the fruit is vibrant and clean with good balance and a leathery finish."

Wine Advocate 89
" The 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is a tight and tonic red wine with loads of fresh fruit and crisp acidity at the back. The wine is simple, clean and compact in structure. It would make a great pairing partner to pasta with a hearty meat sauce or breaded veal chops. It's your quintessential food wine. Altesino is an estate in dynamic motion. I had not been back in a number of years and the property has seen an impressive series of positive changes during my absence. Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini runs her historic property with deft precision and a careful eye for both aesthetics and quality. The yellow-rimmed botte in her cellar are a prime example of that feminine touch. When Elisabetta purchased the property in 2002 she had just emerged victorious from a bidding war with Ch√Ęteau Margaux. The feisty Elisabetta who owns the adjacent Caparzo property tells me: "I just couldn't have French neighbors." Her aim in terms of winemaking is to stay true to Montalcino tradition. Because she owns vineyard parcels in the four quadrants of Montalcino, she has added blending flexibility to make the wines she wants by sourcing fruit with different ripeness from the various subzones."
