CASISANO

Tommasi is historically and today a standard bearer of the Amarone appellation, and one of the most important quality producers in the Veneto. The family-run estate was founded in 1902 by Giacomo Tommasi in the village of Pedemonte, which lies in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico region. The family owns 260 acres in Valpolicella Classico, making them the single largest land owners in the area. Over the years they have expanded their holdings in other areas of Italy, and have after many years been able to secure an estate in an outstanding area of Montalcino.
 
Podere Casisano was purchased in 2015 from the Ciarpella family of Rome. Nestled among rolling hills in the south-eastern part of the appellation, between the villages of Montalcino, Castelnuove dell'Abate, and Sant' Angelo in Colle, the estate is situated on a splendid natural terrace overlooking the famous abbey of St. Antimo. The  total property covers 131 acres, of which 57 acres are vineyards for Brunello and Rosso and 30 acres are planted with olive trees. The winery, which was known as Casisano-Colombaio under its previous ownership, has for years produced a very traditional style of Brunello, with a long aging in large Slavonian oak casks - a classic style of winemaking favored by the Tommasi family. Tommasi has retained the original winemaking team, now under the guidance of head winemaker Giancarlo Tommasi, and is set to take the wines to even greater heights.
