White Blend

The Barbanera family make some of our most popular Tuscan wines – and some of our most acclaimed, too. They’ve got so many gold medals and huge 90+ point scores, we’ve almost lost count – and this beauty makes one more …

Young winemaking star Sofia Barbanera crafted it in honor of her great-grandfather, Altero, who founded the family winery in 1938. But Altero was more than just a founder – he inspired Sofia’s love of wine and, as she tells it, “he was never afraid to innovate. … totally unrestrained by convention and traditions.”

Fitting then, that Altero’s namesake wine – which earned an impressive 95 points from leading Italian wine critic, Luca Maroni – features not one but four grapes, all of which ripened gorgeously in 2015 (widely regarded as the best recent vintage across Italy): Trebbiano, Malvasia, Moscato, and Chardonnay. Unoaked to allow all the complex, juicy fruit character to shine through, it’s guaranteed to add a real spark to your next dinner party (especially if roasted chicken or seafood hors d’oeuvres are on the menu).

You’re in for waves of golden pineapple, white grape, super-ripe lemon and hints of white flowers. The palate is very zippy and bright, with a whistle-clean, saline-tinged finish that will have you reaching for a second glass.
