Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

Download

This elegant, traditional style Brunello is produced at a mid-sized estate located in the southern hills of Montalcino, between the towns of Sant’ Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell’Abate, one of the most quintessentially picturesque areas in Tuscany.

Vineyard

The Casisano vineyard enjoys southeastern exposure and is composed of various soil types. It is particularly rich in galestro stone.

Winemaking

The wine sees 25 days of skin maceration and is then aged in Slavonian oak casks for 3 years, followed by an additional four months of bottle aging.

Tasting Note

Firm, laced with cherry, leather and earth flavors, this red is chewy, with dusty tannins building on the finish.

Reviews

Wine Enthusiast - "This opens with aromas of underbrush, new leather, pressed blue flower and a whiff of game. On the medium-bodied palate, polished fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity support dried black cherry, orange zest and start anise."

"Outstanding example of the graceful style of Sangiovese"

Vinous Media - "Good full red. Precise, perfumed aromas of red berries, flowers and spices, lifted by a mineral nuance. Not a fleshy wine but juicy and firm and with outstanding inner-mouth perfume, with lovely balancing acidity giving the wine vibrancy and wonderful clarity and cut. Not the last work in concentration but finishes with sweet tannins and very good length. This is very varietally accurate and an outstanding example of the graceful style of Sangiovese that Montalcino can deliver, with perfume and precision similar to some of the best Chianti Classicos but bigger in size. I especially like this wine's balance, which will have you hardly noticing the 14% alcohol. Well done."

"Appealing balance"

James Suckling - "Intensely herbal with licorice and walnut notes, this has an appealing balance of sweetness and firm, dry tannins. Better from 2019 and should develop well for another decade after that"

Rosso di Montalcino

Casisano Rosso di Montalcino is a classic expression of Sangiovese Grosso, the Sangiovese clone used to make both Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino. Lively and elegant, Casisano Rosso has a round medium body, with soft and velvety tannins, and the wine perfectly and faithfully reflects Montalcino's unique terroir.
