The 2006 Pietradonice (Cabernet Sauvignon) explodes from the glass with the essence of blackberry jam, French oak, grilled herbs and cassis. This super-ripe, opulent wine offers tons of elegance and finesse in a full-bodied style. The tannins are firm but ripe, and beautifully balanced by the wine's radiant, warm fruit. This is a gem from proprietor Giacomo Neri.

If you love rich, sun-filled red wines from Tuscany, this is a perfect choice. In the mouth, you get firm tannins and bright cherry flavors on the close. Excellent.

Wine Spectator, October 2009
This is very ripe verging on raisin. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and a lot of dried fruits on the palate like fruitcake. Slightly overdone but still likeable for its character and richness. Best after 2011.

Winery

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.
