Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Download

The Casisano Rosso di Montalcino is a red-fruited, traditional Sangiovese that comes from vineyards nestled in the southern hills of one of Italy’s most renowned wine producing areas, midway between the towns of Sant’Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell’Abate in the heart of Montalcino. The wine is a classic expression of Sangiovese Grosso, the Sangiovese clone used to make both Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino.

Faithful representation of terroir and traditional winemaking methods are a high priority for the Tommasi family, who purchased the estate in 2015. Both the vine training system – single spurred cordon – and the fermentation process – 15 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks followed by aging in Slavonian oak barrels –  are the traditional methods of cultivating the vines and aging the wines. The result is a lively and elegant wine with a round medium body and soft, velvety tannins that perfectly reflects Montalcino’s unique terroir.

Brunello di Montalcino

Casisano’s Brunello di Montalcino is distinguished by its elegance and its deep ruby red color. It unites potency and refinement and has excellent aging potential. The wine presents a good concentration on the mid-palate and a persistent aftertaste, with a rounded and voluptuous body, and interesting, silky tannins, typical of the prestigious wines of Montalcino. With its tempting perfumes of red berries and its clean freshness, the complexity of this wine presents an excellent balance.
