Tuscany is best suited for the cultivation of Sangiovese, undoubtedly Italy’s most important red grape variety. Following fermentation, Altadonna Sangiovese is aged for one year in stainless steel. Ripe aromas of dark cherry and herbs are backed by mild floral undertones and tar to create a structured wine with polished tannins. The perfect food-pairing wine, Altadonna Sangiovese pairs well with a wide array of dishes, from hearty pastas to grilled meats.

Producer
After a distinguished 25-year career working for some of the most prestigious, internationally acclaimed estates in Italy, Stefano Chioccioli – one of Italy’s leading enologists and agronomists – is working alongside his son Niccolo to produce wines under their own label: Altadonna. While Niccolo received a formal education in enology, following in Stefano’s footsteps and earning a degree from the University of Florence, he insists that it was his father who truly taught him the essentials of making and understanding wine. Together, they are producing wines that capture the essence of Italy and its diverse terroirs. The Altadonna line is comprised of six varietal wines, each made from the principle grape variety of the respective region in its purity. From Pinot Grigio in the Venezie region to Nero d’Avola in Sicily, each wine is a reflection of this father-son team’s expertise and love for the land. According to Stefano, “The role of the winemaker is to enhance the land where he works, obtaining wines with the maximum quality expression of their area, applying a respect for nature with a modern winemaking approach creating richly balanced wines with fresh aromas. Quality is made in the details.” In developing Altadonna, Stefano and Niccolo sought out some of the top producers from which to source their fruit. They work closely with these producers to ensure the grapes are cultivated according to their strict quality standards. To eliminate the potential of crop deterioration during transport, the Chiocciolis work with trusted, local cellars in each region. They also closely monitor the vinification process to produce the highest quality wines. The winery takes its name from this duo’s beloved wife and mother, Anna Altadonna. In addition to adopting her maiden name, the brand features her silhouette on the front label of every bottle.
