Carus Vini

Tuscany, Italy

Carus Vini was created in the 1990s in the San Casciano in Val di Pesa, the heart of Chianti Classico. Most of its vineyards were planted under the direction of the late Giacomo Tachis, the famous Italian oenologist collaborated on and launched Super Tuscans such as Sassicaia and Tignanello. The vineyards are on calcareous clay hillsides, at elevation of 300m above sea level. Growth and productivity are carefully balanced; the vineyards are carefully tended until the harvest (done by hand into small baskets) which is carried out in different phases to guarantee only perfectly ripe grapes are picked.

Current owner is the charismatic and charming Guido Carissimo who purchased the estate in 2011. A passion for wine has accompanied the Carissimo family for four generations. Enchanted by the beautiful landscape and the stillness of the Terzona valley, Guido Carissimo moved to Tuscany to begin his dream of making wine in the heart of Chianti Classico. Guido’s philosophy is to create harmony between agriculture and nature, helping to reduce man’s environmental footprint.
