Alteo

Alteo

Chianti Riserva D.O.C.G.
Sangiovese grapes are selected in the vineyard and then carefully destemmed in the winery and put immediately into steel vats without crushing. The must is kept in contact with the skins for about 20 days with pumping over every 10 hours and 1 delestage a week. The name Alteo is a combination of the names of owner Lia Tolaini-Banville’s sons, Alessandro and Matteo. The painting is a detail of Bacchus from artist Rik Olsen’s Bramosia painting.
