    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. I can't help noticing that the mouthfeel is shorter and less impactful than other expressions from this vintage. The wine fades on the finish, but that snappy variety-driven acidity kicks in on the close. 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 wine was bottled in July 2019 and hits the market in February 2020.

    Aromas of scorched earth, toasted nut, used leather and underbrush form the subdued nose. Reflecting the scorching vintage, the evolved, no frills palate shows prune, dried tobacco leaf and a salty note alongside close-grained tannins that leave a mouthdrying finish. KERIN O’KEEFE

  • Hold it. This time the noblest of Tuscan wines has taken centre stage. His Majesty Brunello, in a very interesting version, proposed by the Tommasi family in the Podere Casisano estate. On the southeast side of the hill. Here the vineyards are surrounded by centuries-old woods and the roots sink into a unique soil in terms of composition and depth. The picture is completed by a special microclimate, capable of pampering the bunches of Sangiovese grosso, the only ones allowed by regulations in the composition, until they reach full maturity. From here on, the task of the good winemaker is above all not to ruin what nature has given him. The winemaker does so with great skill, vinifying the grapes with traditional methods, long maceration of the skins and a perfect control of the temperature. Then time is a valuable ally. It takes at least 3 years in large Slavonian oak containers to tame the Sangiovese and make it elegant on the palate. Time well spent, we'll say once we've uncorked the bottle and served the first glass. It certainly doesn't happen often, but if we find an important roast of game or furry game on our table, we can do it justice with a wine of equal value. But even without reaching those levels, a Brunello like this can also be 'sacrificed' with a simple grilled meat or a piece of great aged cheese. After all, these are some of life's little pleasures.

    From Veneto to the whole world. Tommasi is a family business founded in 1902 and today it is run by the fourth generation of the family. A name that is, for many wine lovers, a guarantee of absolute quality. Over the years the company has grown a lot, acquiring vineyards and properties in different parts of Italy. Today the Tommasi Family Estates is a solid business reality, which can count on a total of about 570 hectares of vineyards, divided into five regions. Seven estates between Valpolicella Classica and Puglia, passing through Lombardy, Tuscany and now even Basilicata. Unlike other entrepreneurial realities that, as they have grown, have gradually lost their taste for quality research and their passion for the territory, at Tommasi these values have remained central. A great company awarded by international critics and present with its products in dozens of markets, which has been able to maintain a family spirit.
