Altesino

Among the eastern hills northeast of Montalcino rise the austere walls of the Altesi Palace, which dominate the estate. The Palazzo was built in the mid-15th century by the noble Tuscan Tricerchi family, whose coat of arms in white marble can still be seen set above the ancient oak doorway. Altesino has been owned by the Gnudi Angelini family since 2002, and the technical and production departments are run by Paolo Caciorgna. In the 1970s, Altesino introduced important innovations that affected the production of Brunello, thus establishing itself as a leading company and reference point for the entire territory. Altesino has been a forerunner in the pursuit of excellence with the introduction of the "cru" concept in 1975 (with Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli) and the first experiments with barriques in 1979. Over the last forty years an intense relationship has been developed with a land full of history, endowed with an almost sensual beauty that is physically perceived and with a subtle charm that reaches the body and the soul. This is the philosophy that inspires Altesino to produce wine and maintain its culture.
