This tiny Tuscan estate produce absolutely fabulous wines. Their Brunello is aged in large 20hl Botti of Slavonian Oak for 36 months followed by a minimum of 12 months in bottle before release. The wine beautifully combines redcurrant and dark cherry with notes of tobacco and roasted herbs. It's wonderfully smooth in texture and finishes very long.
Albatreti is a 29ha property of which 5ha are under vine and 1.8ha dedicated to Brunello di Montalcino. Located at an altitude of 400-500m asl just outside the town of Montalcino in Southern Tuscany, this estate is cared for by hand by the owner Gaetano Salvioni. The skeletal soils (containing a high proportion of rock fragments), contribute to the linear and mineral character of the wines. The only grape variety planted is Sangiovese Grosso.
