Casisano Brunello di Montalcino (92 VM)
“Good full red. Precise, perfumed aromas of red berries, flowers and spices, lifted by a mineral nuance. Not a fleshy wine but juicy and firm and with outstanding inner-mouth perfume, with lovely balancing acidity giving the wine vibrancy and wonderful clarity and cut. Not the last work in concentration but finishes with sweet tannins and very good length. This is very varietally accurate and an outstanding example of the graceful style of Sangiovese that Montalcino can deliver, with perfume and precision similar to some of the best Chianti Classicos but bigger in size. I especially like this wine’s balance, which will have you hardly noticing the 14% alcohol. Well done.”
