Item Description
James Suckling 94
Subtle aromas of sweet berries and flowers with some cedar and cured meat. Its firm and very creamy with ripe tannins and a soft, pretty finish. Lovely ripeness at the end. Drinkable now, but better in two or three years.

Vinous Media 93
The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino shows a classic bouquet with a mix of dried cherries and strawberries, complemented by shavings of cedar, cinnamon, leather and dusty earth. Soft, silky textures soothe as tart woodland berries, salty minerals and fine tannins saturate, creating a youthfully poised expression. Tension remains high throughout the structured finale, yet with plenty of primary fruit to balance. The 2016 is full of potential, but it will require some time to soften and fill out.

Wine Spectator 93
There is a mix of cherry, currant, plum, leather, spice and sanguine flavors highlighting this stylish, yet firmly-structured red. Harmonious, the ripe fruit balances resonant tannins, ending with a fine iron-tinged finish. Best from 2024 through 2043. 3,750 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.

Jeb Dunnuck 93
Casisano is situated at a high elevation of 480 meters overlooking SantAngelo in Colle in the south. Aged for three years in large Slavonian oak, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino offers aromas of dried red cherry, sun-dried leather, Mediterranean herbs, and fresh fennel, followed by fine grained tannin, notes of ripe raspberry, blood orange, and tomato leaf, and crisp acidity. Enjoy this now for its refreshing and crispy structure, though it will certainly develop favorably. Drink 2021-2036.

Decanter 90
From a relatively cool, high altitude site, Casisanos 2016 is more angular than its 2015 counterpart. The Tommasi team gave it a slightly longer maceration of 25 days, with fewer pump overs for a slower, more gentle extraction. It needs some time to integrate its wood notes and allow the somewhat rigid tannins to relax. Attractive nuances of forest floor, woodland berries, sweet spice and cedar are promising, and it finishes with the vintages zippiness. Drinking Window 2023 - 2032.

Wine Enthusiast 90
The nose is quite shy but eventually releases suggestions of red berry, forest floor and camphor. The smooth, medium-bodied palate is elegantly structured, offering sour cherry, orange zest and star anise alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink 20232028.
