Donna Laura Alteo Chianti Riserva 2020


Donna Laura Alteo Chianti Riserva is clear ruby red color with clean aromas of wild rose, black currant and sour black cherry. Persistent flavors of red berries with soft tannins and an overall fine structure.

Alteo undergoes a temperature-controlled fermentation. The must is kept in contact with the skins for about 20 days with pumping over performed every 10 hours and 1 délestage a week. The wine matures for one year in 25HL barrels and 6 months in stainless steel with another 6 months in bottle.

The name Alteo is a combination of the names of owner Lia Tolaini-Banville’s sons, Alessandro and Matteo. The label is a detail of Bacchus from artist Rik Olsen’s Bramosia painting.

Tolaini Donna Laura – Toscana


The Tolaini Estate is located in the prestigious comune of Castelnuovo Berardenga, the southern-most region of Chianti Classico. This area of Tuscany is known for producing wines of strength, power and longevity.

When Pier Luigi Tolaini left his Tuscan home for North America as a young man in 1956, he dreamed of coming back to Italy one day to make a great Tuscan wine. In 1998, Pier Luigi returned to his native land and began to search for the best location to make the wine he had been dreaming about over the past 40 years.

In the heart of Castelnuovo Berardenga, Pier Luigi discovered the Montebello and Vallenuova vineyards. With an incredible variation in elevation and ideal soil profiles, he understood immediately the great potential that this land possessed.

Today, Pier Luigi’s daughter Lia Tolaini Banville continues his dream of making Tuscan wines that honor the distinctive terroir of Castelnuovo Berardenga. Lia is preserving the impressive legacy of Pier Luigi while bringing new ideas and innovation to the Tolaini Estate.

Donna Laura estate is a separate estate also belonging to Tolaini family that is taken care of by the same enologist and agronomist as the Tolaini estate.
