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

Casisano is situated at a high elevation of 480 meters overlooking Sant'Angelo in Colle in the south. Aged for three years in large Slavonian oak, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino offers aromas of dried red cherry, sun-dried leather, Mediterranean herbs, and fresh fennel, followed by fine grained tannin, notes of ripe raspberry, blood orange, and tomato leaf, and crisp acidity. Enjoy this now for its refreshing and crispy structure, though it will certainly develop favorably. Drink 2021-2036.

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino shows a classic bouquet with a mix of dried cherries and strawberries, complemented by shavings of cedar, cinnamon, leather and dusty earth. Soft, silky textures soothe as tart woodland berries, salty minerals and fine tannins saturate, creating a youthfully poised expression. Tension remains high throughout the structured finale, yet with plenty of primary fruit to balance. The 2016 is full of potential, but it will require some time to soften and fill out.

There is a mix of cherry, currant, plum, leather, spice and sanguine flavors highlighting this stylish, yet firmly-structured red. Harmonious, the ripe fruit balances resonant tannins, ending with a fine iron-tinged finish. Best from 2024 through 2043. 3,750 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.

The nose is quite shy but eventually releases suggestions of red berry, forest floor and camphor. The smooth, medium-bodied palate is elegantly structured, offering sour cherry, orange zest and star anise alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink 2023-2028.
