Casadei Sogno Mediterraneo 2018
This wine is powerful, yet supple and elegant. The nose opens with intense berry and cassis fruit, highlighted by notes of dark chocolate and tobacco. Firm and silky upon entry, the palate is equally intense with chewy and sweet tannins and a very persistent finish with dark berries and sweet spices.
Velvety and rich, this wine is a good companion for tasty meats like lamb, roasted or stewed beef; aged mild cheeses, pasta with game sauce.
Located in the southern part of the DOC Val di Cornia, at an altitude of just over 50 meters, the estate is located in an area of low hills, sheltered by mountains to the North East. The natural vegetation is typically Mediterranean, with a prevalence of cork oaks, strawberry trees and pines.
A unique area, capable of producing precious wines, the result of international grapes can express the aromas and the charm of the Mediterranean environment of the zones.
Stefano Casadei, owner of the estate, shares with his brother Andrew and his wife Anna Baj Macario a path of field experience, passion and intuitions, but also of tradition and love of the land, from which derive all the necessary requirements to the diffusion of an enology quality. With his primary studies in agricultural disciplines, the thirty-year service activities alongside manufacturers and consultants of the most important international and specialized courses in enology and viticulture followed at the University of Bordeaux and Montpellier, he developed a significant expertise in analytical control and wine quality. This is how three ambitious projects, sharing the same philosophy, with the quality and the local tradition:
Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.
A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
