Named after the main villa at Altesino, this is a modern take on a Tuscan classic. Made entirely from Sangiovese grapes that are hand-selected from the prestigious Montosoli vineyard. One third of the grapes undergo carbonic maceration and the entire batch is then fermented in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks. To provide additional elegance, Palazzo Altesi is aged in Allier barriques for approximately one year.
This rich garnet wine couples aromas of wild berries and violets with leather and smoke. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and bursting with dried red cherry flavors, framed by firm but integrated tannins.
A focused and age-worthy red, best enjoyed with roast game and barbecued meats.
