"This hits all the right notes, from the cherry, black currant, mineral and tobacco flavors to the lively structure and polished tannins. A woodsy mushroom element adds interest as this builds to a lingering aftertaste."
James Suckling 94
"This is a very floral red, showing hibiscus, rhubarb, citrus and rosemary. Medium - to full - bodied with attractive depth of fruit, fine yet chewy tannins and a zesty, building finish. Tightly wound and understated, this Brunello will need time to come together fully, but is already showing a soft-spoken, graceful persona."

"Bright dark red. Aromas of strawberry, minerals, smoke and herbs. Suave and silky, with harmonious acidity giving the wine's red fruit and herb flavors a ripe polished nuance. Still broodingly young, the long finish boasts good lift."
Wine Advocate 91
"This vintage represents the first wine made entirely under the care of the estate's new owners, the Tommasi family of Valpolicella, and winemakers Emiliano Falsini and Giancarlo Tommasi. The Casisano 2015 Brunello di Montalcino reveals classic Sangiovese aromas of wild cherry, blue flower, licorice and moist earth. This is a more accessible and informal expression of Brunello. Fruit comes from a nine hectare vineyard located at 500 meters above sea level with Galestro rich soils.
"The first vintage in which the Tommasi family had full control over the production at the southeast facing Casisano property, which sits at 480 metres above sea level. Despite warm conditions, the cooler micro-climate is evident in this fresh, perfumed Brunello. Fragrant mint, cedar and forest floor lead to a savory rather than fruity palate. Dense fruit is framed by tactile, textured tannins and countered by bright, tangy acidity. Well done!"
