Chianti Riserva D.O.C.G.
Alteo undergoes a temperature-controlled fermentation. The must is kept in contact with the skins for about 20 days with pumping over performed every 10 hours and 1 délestage a week. The wine matures for one year in 25HL barrels and 6 months in stainless steel with another 6 months in bottle.
The name Alteo is a combination of the names of owner Lia Tolaini-Banville’s sons, Alessandro and Matteo. The label is a detail of Bacchus from artist Rik Olsen’s Bramosia painting.
