Altesino's Rosso Toscana 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 Altesino's Rosso Toscana is ready to be enjoyed upon release.

Tasting Notes

Rosso 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.

Food Pairing

A perfect choice for rich, creamy pasta dishes, stuffed roasted game hens or barbecued chorizo or other sausages.
