Montalcino and outstanding cycling share some history, a history of legendary stages, known here as “tappe”. The Giro d’Italia is an annual multiple-stage professional cycling race first organized in 1909. The XI stage of 2021 Giro d’Italia ends in Montalcino.
For the occasion, La Gazzetta dello Sport , the most popular and read Italian sport newspaper, has dedicated a full page to Montalcino and its red wine Brunello and selected Casisano Brunello di Montalcino 2016  among the 6 best 2016 vintage.

“2016 vintage in Montalcino is undeniably one of the best vintages for great Tuscan terroir. Since 2015 I am the oenologist of Casisano,  one of the most evocative corners of the appellation, almost 20 hectares in the south-east side lying at almost 500 meters above sea level. Brunello di Montalcino 2016 is the pure expression of this terroir: a Brunello expressing elegance, energy and freshness, the right reflection of Casisano land have decided was right. ” Emiliano Falsini – Casisano winemaker
