‘Altero’ Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G.

While we first produced this wine in 1983, it has actually only been a Brunello since 1995 due to a change in the aging in oak regulations for the production of Brunello which were reduced to 2 years. This modern expression of Brunello gained fame when President Obama gifted a bottle to speak Boehner and it made the CNN news!

Details:
The 2015 Altero was made from a selection of the best wine in the cellar. Aged for 30 months in French oak tonneaux (500 l), followed by 18 months of bottle refinement, the 2015 vintage is definitely cellar worthy. Juicy red currants, cherries, and sprigs of fresh rosemary are robed in vanilla and baking spice with just a wisp of smoke. Best with BBQ or lightly smoked meats and cheeses.
