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.

Outstanding tour with Giovanni, he was very proud of his position. Wines were excellent. Olive oil was outstanding. The view from the estate overlooks a 360* view. Worth the drive to visit a beautiful place.

Julia was our host and she was amazing. The wine is delicious and the winery is immaculate. The premier wine tasting with cheese and meat was very tasty. Highly recommended.

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

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
