Brunello di Montalcino 2017

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG


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.


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


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


Rainy winter with average temperatures. Fresh mild spring, with a significant lowering of the temperature in the second half of April and scarce rain also during summer, the cool nights in July partially compensated for the water shortage.

The rain came at the beginning of September and in combination with mild temperatures, avoided the risk of a too accelerated final ripening of the grapes, allowing a fixation of the anthocyanins and a balanced aromas. Sunny October created ideal conditions for the grape harvest.

The harvested grapes showed a remarkable complexity in aromas and tannins, elegant and excellent natural acidity.

Tasting Note

Intense ruby in color, it opens to the nose with an elegant complexity with characteristic aromas of fresh red fruit and spicy notes. Harmonic to the taste, it in fact has a great tannic structure and an excellent acidity; it presents an excellent and long aromatic persistence both on the nose and in the mouth, with marked characteristics of elegance and minerality, all elements of extraordinary longevity.
