Chocolate fudge dark cherry blackberry preserves rum cake prune exotic spice pipe tobacco cola hummus and leather. Huge personality and intensity. Staying power too. All that density is backed by solid tannins and a steady firmness. Hold 10-15 more years. - M.L.

Firm underlying tannins lend vibrancy to the voluptuous fruit. The Casanova di Neri straight bottling - sometimes referred to as the "white label" - is made from some of the estate's cooler sites. In 2007 the wine has more depth fruit and overall harmony than is typically the case. Bright acidity frames the long polished finish. In short this is a fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. Along with the 2006 the 2007 is one the best and most complete vintages I can remember tasting in some time. Most importantly of all though it is flat-out delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. --- Antonio Galloni

Dark berries and sliced lemons on the nose. Full body with juicy fruit and lightly toasted. Delicious finish. Best in 2014.

A touch of spicy oak introduces this cherry- plum- and spice-flavored red. Sleek and tight with tobacco and underbrush flavors tagging along on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2030. -BS

Label

The Sangiovese fruit in Casanova di Neri’s Brunello di Montalcino is bunch-sorted prior to de-stemming and then sorted again grape-by-grape. The maceration and native yeast fermentation take place in open, temperature-controlled vats for 3 to 4 weeks. Oak barrel-aging lasts about 42 months followed by six months in bottle before release.

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.
