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. Rosso di Montalcino is vinified in controlled temperature for 15 days then refined in bottle for 6 month.

BEST BUY. "Scents of pink petals and fresh cherries lead into lively red-berry and orange-zest flavors in this zesty, high-toned Rosso. Its racy acidity and midweight frame make it a versatile wine for poultry and light pasta dishes."

 

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, Jan/2022

"The 2020 Rosso di Montalcino is peppery, floral and fresh, with crushed stone and tart wildberries giving way to hints of clove. This is a juicy and pure expression, one that impresses on its zesty personality and sour-versus-sweet mix of red fruits and citrus tones. The finish is gently tannic, while tapering off with hints of plum and purple-tinged inner florals."

 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Feb/2022

"The 2020 Rosso di Montalcino embraces red fruit, cherry, lavender essence and some grilled herb. Despite the heat and sunshine of the vintage, this wine delivers balanced results with fresh acidity and a short, compact finish. The wine is thin, but a pizza would do just fine as an informal pairing partner."

"Cherries and lilacs on the nose with some meaty mineral character. Medium-bodied with lots of acidity to freshen up the fruit and provide drive. Quite firm at the end. Drink now."

"This wine’s rich, concentrated fruit tones reflect the warmth of the 2017 growing season. Notes of licorice and spice further enrich those dark cherry and cassis flavors, the opulence balanced by firm, schisty tannins. It’s a warm, robust Rosso that is best enjoyed in its youth, alongside a seared ribeye."

"Pretty cherry fruit defines this open, elegant, firmly structured red. Balanced, leaving a mouthwatering impression. Drink now through 2023. 5,416 cases made, 300 cases imported."

 

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, Apr/2020

"The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino shows an intensely ripe display of sweet spice and dusty florals, as crushed raspberries give way to savory herbs and leather tones. The finish is medium in length, resonating on spiced cherry and brisk acids."

 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Jul/2019

2017 -

"The Casisano 2017 Rosso di Montalcino opens to bright and tonic aromas of wild cherry and pressed blackberry. The wine's fruit-forward signature is well defined, especially so in this hot and dry vintage. That plush berry brightness makes this wine a natural companion to pasta topped with chunks of smoked bacon and grated pecorino cheese."

"Chopped mint and ripe dark-skinned-berry aromas lead the nose. The juicy, savory palate doles out succulent Morello cherry, baking spice and the same minty note found on the nose. Lithe tannins and fresh acidity provide the easygoing framework. It's everything a Rosso di Montalcino should be: easy drinking and delicious. Enjoy through 2020."

"There are plenty of caramelized strawberries as well as treacle tart to this Rosso di Montalcino, which follows through to a rich yet tight palate with refreshing acidity and a pretty finish. Drink now."
