Subtle yet rich for the vintage with cedar blackberry and licorice aromas. Full-bodied with lovely silky tannins and a long flavorful finish. Layers of refined polished tannins. Very fine for the vintage. Best after 2006... Subtle yet rich for the vintage with cedar blackberry and licorice aromas. Full-bodied with lovely silky tannins and a long flavorful finish.

Neri’s 2000 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is another powerful muscular effort. Its aromatics are somewhat suppressed by the hot vintage and although it offers plenty of fruit and notable expansiveness on the palate it lacks the nuance and depth of expression of the stunning 1999. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017.

Casanova di Neri

In 1971, Giovanni Neri founded Casanova di Neri in the eastern part of Montalcino. Over time, vineyards were added in other areas. The first was the Cerretalto vineyard which has a unique terroir in a natural amphitheatre over the Asso river. The winery used its old vines, with small bunches of well-spaced grapes, to create a selection for propagation in their other vineyards.

The first Brunello harvest in the original vineyard was in 1978. Harvests in other vineyards started with Cerretalto in 1981, then Tenuta Nuova in 1993, Pietradonice in 2000 and Ibbianco in 2011. Currently the estate covers a surface of around 500 hectares of which 63 are vineyards, 20 olive groves and the rest arable land and forest.
