Casisano Rosso di Montalcino (90 WE)
“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 tannis and fresh acidity provide the easygoing framework. Its everything a Rosso di Montalcino should be: easy drinking and delicious”

Rosso di Montalcino DOC
The Casisano Rosso di Montalcino is a red-fruited, traditional Sangiovese that comes from vineyards nestled in the southern hills of one of Italy’s most renowned wine producing areas, midway between the towns of Sant’Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell’Abate in the heart of Montalcino. The wine is a classic expression of Sangiovese Grosso, the Sangiovese clone used to make both Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino.
The Casisano estate is located in the southeastern part of Montalcino between the St. Antimo Abbey and the Val d'Orcia, arguably the most quintessentially picturesque area in all of Tuscany. Casisano wines are the result of 100 years of passion and a deep understanding of Montalcino, its terroir, and the spectacular wines produced there.
