In the heart of southern Tuscany, forty kilometers south of the City of Siena, far from heavy traffic routes and the main industrial areas, the landscape of Montalcino has remained unchanged and mostly wild. The area where the wines of Montalcino are produced coincides with the historical borders of the Municipality of Montalcino.
Here man has successfully created a respectful relationship with nature, protecting it over the years from illegal construction and property speculation, leaving the charm and magical appeal of an uncontaminated area unchanged over time. In 2004, UNESCO declared this unique cultural environment a World Heritage Site.
Montalcino and its wines are an inseparable combination, based on old traditions and culture, which has shaped the landscape and strongly influenced its socio-economic development. "Azienda Agricola Altesino" (winery and farm) is situated in this unique context.
