Blackberries and blueberries on the nose. Full-bodied, with silky and racy tannins, as well as a hint of vanilla. Long and pretty. Very clean. Needs a little time to open. Best after 2010.

Good full red. Musky, oak-influenced aromas of mocha, coffee and cocoa powder. Then juicy and sweet in the mouth, with ripe, harmonious acidity framing the chewy red fruit and dried rose flavors. Surprisingly delineated in light of the nose. Finishes with serious but fine dusty tannins and excellent length.

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino, from the home vineyards in the northeastern part of Montalcino, dark in color, shows ample notes of wild cherries, plums, game and leather on the nose, much warmth and roundness on the palate, substance and length on the finish. Drink: 2005ndash;2014.

Warm and ripe red with lots of blackberry and cedary oak character. Full-bodied and very thick, yet refined and silky. Should turn out fabulously. Another super wine from Casanova. Best after 2007.

Saturated ruby. Wild aromas of black raspberry, smoked meat, coffee and mocha, complemented by oak notes of coconut, mace and vanilla bean. Sweet, densely packed and primary, with very sweet but firm flavors of dark berries and dark chocolate. Very cleanly made and young, with obviously high-quality oak. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lovely lingering sweetness of fruit.

Intense aromas of plums, grapes and flowers. Full-bodied, with big, juicy tannins and a long berry, licorice finish. Very ripe style. 5,090 cases made.

Rich almost to the point of chunky; aromas of coffee and new oak announce its New World style, and then come blackberry, chocolate and smoked-meat flavors. The wine is probably shocking to the old guard, but if tastes this good, drink it.

Winemaker's Notes:

Brunello Tenuta Nuova began as both a passionate and scientific project, for a wine which only Casanova di Neri can offer. It comes from a mass clone of Sangiovese Cerretalto on a piece of land south of Montalcino, where it acquires “Mediterranean” scents, great finesse and tannic structure. It matures in small oak barrels for 30 months and in the bottle for 18 months.
