Ruby red. This is very aromatic right out of the gate, with enthralling notes of wild strawberries, currants, anise and lavender. On the palate, juicy red fruit is beautifully offset by an earthy undercurrent. There’s... Ruby red. This is very aromatic right out of the gate, with enthralling notes of wild strawberries, currants, anise and lavender. On the palate, juicy red fruit is beautifully offset by an earthy undercurrent. There’s terrific interplay between the acidity and tannins, making this supremely enjoyable now. A solid value from one of the best names in Tuscany, drink now through 2022.

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.
