95 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2022

This is one of the icon wines of Montalcino and one of the bottles that best captures the character of this prized vineyard cru. Altesino farms 4.5 hectares in Montosoli at 350 meters in elevation with galestro soils. The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli is darkly concentrated and rich. It shows an almost creamy consistency that was not easy to achieve in this hot vintage that tends to underline tannic power and alcohol. Instead, this wine offers a steady stream of dark fruit flavors that transition to spice, leather and sweet tobacco. Production is limited to 15,000 bottles.

The charming Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini brings us another fantastic set of new releases from Altesino, a veritable gem of an estate. I want to underline how impressed I was by the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. This fluid and ever-evolving wine showed an exciting new side each time I returned to taste the bottle over a 24-hour period. That wine captures the classic essence of the Altesino personality.

OUR STORY

FOUNDERS AND BACKGROUND

Founders Marco Prete and Cristina Fragni have spent a lifetime in close contact with the top European winemakers and cellar masters, and have spent decades on their shared passion for learning, tasting, and even assisting in the production of fine wines.


After relocating to NYC in 2013, they found that many of their favorite vintages were not available in the US. Inspired by a lack of available inventory on the usual channels, they decided that it was essential to them personally and professionally to create a bespoke, world-class collection of fine wines available for US import.


The Wines of Kings collection of exquisite wines reflects the founders’ obsession with premium wines that are made authentically.
