Commercial description
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. Grapes Sangiovese Grosso 100%

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.

From 9 hectares of vineyards devoted exclusively to the production of Brunello; the Cordon Spur-trained vines face south-east; the mixed soil is rich in stones and galestro (schistous clay). Traditional vinification with maceration on the skins for around 25 days. Maturation for 3 years in Slavonian oak casks with a maximum capacity of 60 hl Minimum 6 months’ bottle-aging.

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