Altesino: Sangiovese, Brunello di Montalcino and Vin Santo
Perugia, Italy
Thursday, December 15th, 2011
Altesino is one of the main wineries of Montalcino and among the protagonists of the renowned Brunello. Not only Brunello, though. In the course of the event have in fact been tasted five wines, expression of the territory and the vineyards of Altesino, all of them related by the same productive philosophy of the winery of Montalcino having in elegance the main characteristic. To the evening took part dr. Guido Orzalesi - sales manager of Altesino - who illustrated to the participants both the history of his winery and the characteristics of the wines and territory. The evening started with the only white wine of the event, Bianco Altesino 2010, made from Chardonnay, Vermentino and Viognier, completely vinified in steel tanks, a wine in which the elegance of Viognier is completed by the roundness and body of Chardonnay and Vermentino. The event continued with Rosso di Montalcino 2010, a wine representing the territory and produced with Sangiovese and aged in cask, a red expressing the immediate and crisp character of the main grape of Montalcino, while emphasizing the pleasing character of fruits and flowers. It then followed the first of the two Brunello di Montalcino wines, vintage 2006, in which can be understood the potentials of Sangiovese in this territory, fruit of the grapes harvested in all Altesino's vineyards, located both in the Northern and Southern slopes of Montalcino area. Particular appreciation has been expressed for the famous Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli 2006 - the first "cru" of Brunello ever created in Montalcino - aged in cask and, also in this case, a perfect representative of Altesino's productive philosophy based on Sangiovese's elegance. The event ended with a sweet touch, a rarity, with Val d'Arbia Vin Santo d'Altesi 2001, produced in the traditional small barrels "caratelli" with the method of the "mother" and allowed to ferment and age for more than 7 years. A Vin Santo of great personality, with a complex organoleptic character, an excellent meditation wine which can also be perfectly paired to piquant and hard cheese.
