More Info

Podere Casisano stands among the silent hills of Tuscany, surrounded by noble vineyards and majestic olive trees. The vineyard is located in the south-east hill side of the Montalcino area. Casisano wines are the result of 100 years of passion, experience and love for the superb Montalcino lands. It is another story of the Tommasi Family, based on tradition and prestigious wine estates. Brunello di Montalcino is aged for 3 years in Slavonian oak cask and refined in bottle for 4 months.

"Aromas of grilled herb, dark spice and mature blackskinned fruit lead the nose. The ripe, generous palate doles out succulent black cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and nutmeg alongside round, velvety tannins. "

"A beefy, tannic style, with submerged cherry and plum flavors, accented by spice and leather notes. The fruit core extends through the finish. Best from 2019 through 2033. 1,500 cases made."

“A vegetal aroma gives way to cherry and leafy underbrush notes in this vibrant red. Firm and chalky in texture, picking up leather and tobacco accents on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2032. 600 cases imported.”
