Albatreti Rosso di Montalcino 2018

14% abv

Vol- 75cl

“At first, the 2018 Albatreti Rosso di Montalcino is quite restrained on the nose, showing only a hint of dusty strawberry; yet time in the glass brings pretty florals, hints of animal musk, and minerals. Soft textures give way to fleshy ripe cherry on the palate, framed by zesty acids and minerals, while peppery herbal tones resonate throughout. The finish is medium in length, showcasing a mix of saline-minerality and spice, made lively through mouthwatering acidity.

The Albatreti winery was founded by Gaetano Salvioni, a graduate of Fine Art from Florence University and cousin to the world-famous Giulio Salvioni (La Cerbaiola). Gaetano's father and mother owned small properties in the surroundings of Montalcino so viticulture and winemaking have always been a significant part of their lives. The property was almost abandoned after the great frost of January 1985 when about 1000 olive trees were killed by the polar temperatures. Only a small vineyard (0.15 ha), high density planted, resisted the frost. Gaetano and his wife, from whose family the property originated, decided to shift the production to grapes and wine. Alongside the small old vineyard in 1999 they planted 2.5 hectares of Sangiovese, followed by another 2 hectares few years later.

"Another micro-producer, Gaetano Salvioni makes about 450 cases a year of Brunello and about 150 cases of Rosso di Montalcino. The 2009 vintage was his first release. He worked in a town called Buonconvento for years as a stereo salesman, but inherited a small piece of property in the Tavernelle region next to Villa le Prata. Made in botte, the wine boasts hints of spice and floral notes, and is focused, long and balanced with good richness. The grapes comes from higher up on the hill - three different parcels with three different exposures, allowing for freshness."
