Altesino

This wine is from Italy, Tuscany region, Val D'arbia sub-region. Vin Santo, which translates as ???holy wine??? in Italian, is a t...raditional sweet wine from Tuscany. This dessert wine is made from Malvasia and Trebbiano Toscano, which are dried for three to six months. The fermentation and aging processes take place over eight years in chestnut caratelli (small wooden casks), resulting in a wine of incredible complexity and concentration.. Intense caramel, roasted walnut, fig paste and treacle aromas and flavors are the main themes in this moderately viscous Vin Santo. The acidity and light tannins are cleansing, allowing for a caramel and vanilla aftertaste. Drink now.. Varietal Composition50% Trebbiano Toscana and 50% Malvasia.

Wine Spectator rating: 98. Altesino is one of best producers of Brunello di Montalcino, and its single-vineyard Brunello, Montosol...i, is benchmark wine. It shows power and finesse that Sangiovese can produce in unique soils and climate of region. Since estate was founded in mid-1970s, Montosoli has only been made in seven vintages: 1975, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1993, 1995 and 1997. I gave 1997, a complex yet reserved red with a long future ahead of it, a rating of 98 points. read more
