Purchased by their father, Ivo, the winery is currently owned and operated by the three Cassini brothers; Danilo, Franco and Giancarlo. The land sits in the heart of Tuscany in the historical town, Gaiole. The Cassini brothers are Chianti; classic, sturdy and getting better every year. They and their wines are indistinguishable.
The ‘Super Tuscan’ Sorprasassi is produced only in the best years for its production. It boasts delicious aromas of red fruit and leather with a similar palate of ripe cherries, mature strawberries, leather and oak.. The tannins mellow out with a bit of air.
