Source: Winemaker,

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.
