This is a typical 2013 with a sweetness of fruit and plums. Citrus undertones. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a lively finish. Drink or hold.

This blockbuster Montalcino estate has released another fantastic collection of new wines, including the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino. Beautifully executed, the wine oozes forth from the glass with round, supple and velvety fruit. This Brunello Annata is luscious and deep, with millefoglie aromatic layering that peels back slowly and carefully. The mouthfeel is less elaborate compared to the estate's top expressions, but the bouquet does much to push this score into the low nineties. - Monica Larner

This is focused, with a vivid structure driving the cherry, leather, spice and earth flavors. Dusty tannins follow up, while this remains fresh on the lingering finish. Best from 2020 through 2033. — B.S.

It is aged exclusively in large Slavonian casks, with the intention of producing an elegant Brunello ready to drink soon after release. Bright cherry and pretty floral notes are deepened by black pepper, tobacco and balsamic herbs. The texture is taut yet silky, leading to a long and energetic finish.

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.
