Rosso di Altesino is made from 80% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that are hand-harvested from estate vineyards. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel followed by six to eight months of maturation before bottling. Crafted for accessibility, the fresh fruitiness of Rosso di Altesino is ready to be enjoyed upon release. Rosso di Altesino has a vibrant ruby red color and inviting aromas of ripe berries and forest fruits. Incredibly supple on the palate, with excellent body and balanced structure, Rosso di Altesino is an excellent value.
Smooth and seductive. Can be drunk without food for its own sake which is unusual for many Italian wines.
