Offers crushed berries with flowers and sandalwood. The nose is reserved but interesting. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a long long finish. Very tight and stylish. Racy and powerful. Needs time. Best after 2011. 6750... Offers crushed berries with flowers and sandalwood. The nose is reserved but interesting. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a long long finish. Very tight and stylish.

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova reveals layers of dark perfumed fruit intermingled with French oak spices minerals violets and licorice. The Tenuta Nuova is impressive mostly for its textural richness and sheer depth both qualities it has in spades. The finish is long sweet and pure. Here too the wine will need at least a few years in bottle before its full range of aromas and flavors emerges. Neri gave the Tenuta Nuova 30 months in medium-sized French oak tonneaux. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2024. Giacomo Neri is one of Montalcino's more gregarious producers. His passion clearly comes through in these wines which are characterized by an emphasis on fruit and opulence. Neri's Brunellos also make a great case study in the different microclimates of Montalcino. His straight Brunello di Montalcino is made from vineyards ranging from 350-480 meters in altitude located in the northeastern quadrant of the region. The Tenuta Nuova is made from a densely-planted vineyard located roughly in between Sant'Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell'Abate in the southern part of the zone. The vines in the north typically flower three weeks later than those in the south and naturally ripen later as well which serves to highlight some of the differences between Montalcino's various microclimates. Neri's 2004 Brunellos are immensely successful. I look forward with great anticipation to the 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto which should be released some time next year.-Antonio Galloni

The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova has held up a little bit better than straight Brunello. Here, too, the aromatics are evolved, but there is just enough freshness to suggest the wine will hold on for another few years. The typically rich, bombastic Tenuta Nuova fruit is very much in evidence, and it is the wine's textural depth that is its one saving grace. Readers should finish off any remaining bottles sooner rather than later.

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.
