Altura Chiaretto Isola dGiglio


Altura makes its home on the tiny island of Giglio, off of Italy's western coast just where Tuscany meets Lazio.

The Carfagna family has undertaken a heroic project here to rebuild miles of ancient stone walls and terraces to restore the ancient Altura vineyard site.  The estate is planted to a dazzling array of grape varieties, which are blended, with some white grapes included, to make the Altura reds.

The Chiaretto is the lighter and brighter of Altura's wines, perfect for lunch or afternoon sipping.
