Casisano Rosso di Montalcino DOC
It comes from the high vineyards of Podere Casisano in the hills to the south-east of Montalcino and offers the charm of an immediately appealing style, combined with good structure and the fragrant fruit that is typical of Sangiovese.
Vibrant, fresh and easy-drinking Rosso di Montalcino is often interpreted as inferior to its big brother Brunello. We see it as equally pleasurable and delicious in the context of an everyday wine.
Deep ruby red, but nicely transparent It has a complex bouquet that is reminiscent of violets, plums and red berry fruits, combined with delicate spicy hints. It is dry on the palate, with an attractive balance between its tannins and acidity. The finish is fresh and persistent.
Its freshness and good structure make it very versatile. Excellent with pasta or rice dishes with meat sauces, grilled red meats, Italian cold cuts and cheeses.
Podere Casisano, at 480 meters above sea level, from very well- ventilated, Cordon Spur-trained vineyards with south-easterly exposures.
