Rosso di Montalcino offers the unique style of Casanova di Neri in a wine of structure and elegance but easy to drink and with a strong link with the territory.
For us, Rosso di Montalcino is a wine of primary importance. For its production we use grapes from dedicated vineyards that receive the same attention and care that we put in those destined for the production of Brunelli.
The uniqueness of the terroir is reflected in that of the wine which expresses all the passion for the land and for the vineyard and the meticulous work resulting from a long multigenerational experience. The strong recognition of this wine is also due to our mass selection of Sangiovese.
