This monumental expression of Sangiovese delivers top-notch intensity with seamless integration of aromas. They span from dark fruit and Morello cherry to chocolate, spice, licorice, balsam herb and rosemary sprig. The energy and vitality of the vintage is locked perfectly within. This Brunello exhibits especially soft, silky tannins with long persistence and momentum. There is nothing out of place and the price tag is certainly not exaggerated for this level of excellence. - Monica Larner

This is all about texture and elegance, with the fine balance making this feel effortless. The lingering aftertaste evokes tobacco, leather and spice notes.

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.
