This is a very floral red, showing hibiscus, rhubarb, citrus and rosemary. Medium-to full-bodied with attractive depth of fruit, fine yet chewy tannins and a zesty, building finish. Tightly wound and understated, this Brunello will need time to come together fully, but is already showing a soft-spoken, graceful persona. Drink from 2024.

This vintage represents the first wine made entirely under the care of the estate's new owners, the Tommasi family of Valpolicella, and winemakers Emiliano Falsini and Giancarlo Tommasi. The Casisano 2015 Brunello di Montalcino reveals classic Sangiovese aromas of wild cherry, blue flower, licorice and moist earth. I can't help noticing that the mouthfeel is shorter and less impactful than other expressions from this vintage. The wine fades on the finish, but that snappy variety-driven acidity kicks in on the close. This is a more accessible and informal expression of Brunello. Fruit comes from a nine hectare vineyard located at 500 meters above sea level with Galestro rich soils. The wine was bottled in July 2019 and hits the market in February 2020. Some 45,000 bottles were made.

This wine comes from the splendid Casisano estate, surrounded by hundred-year-old forests, at an altitude of 480 meters above sea level in the hills to the south-east of Montalcino.

The mosaic of microclimates and soil compositions found in the Casisano vineyards, surrounded by ancient oak forests and olive groves, is the foundation for the making of an impressive Brunello di Montalcino.

The mosaic of microclimates and soil compositions found in the Casisano vineyards, surrounded by ancient oak forests and olive groves, is the foundation for the making of an impressive Brunello di Montalcino. Every vintage is a labor of love, as we hand-select the Sangiovese from the 22 hectares of vineyards showing the most promise. The separate vinification and wood aging of grapes from different plots lead to the crucial moment of blending before further in-bottle refinement. Beyond a crystalline interpretation of the vintage, we seek a balanced and consistent style that is imbibed with the unique characteristics of the Casisano vineyards and our underlying philosophy to produce wines that never need to beg to be finished, because they are always elegant enjoyment in any situation.

Tasting Note
Deep ruby red with a garnet tinge in color, the nose reveals all the elegant and fresh complexity of the fruity and spicy notes that are typical of Sangiovese. It displays a very attractive harmony on the palate, with rich fruit combining with velvety tannins, and an amazingly long finish.

Serving Suggestions
Perfect for accompanying rich game dishes, grilled red meats or mature cheeses.
