The "Fiesole" vineyard is situated opposite the farmhouse of the same name where we have our offices and winery. This is the farm's oldest vineyard, situated 350 metres north-east of Montalcino. The grapes from this vineyard are usually used to produce our Brunello di Montalcino. Nearby we find the "Poderuccio" vineyard. It is situated at 350 metres above sea-level. These grapes are also used to produce our Brunello di Montalcino. In 1986 we bought Cerretalto, a magical place. It is a natural amphitheatre near the Asso river at a height which varies between 250 and 300 metres above sea-level. Its position to the east of Montalcino means that it has a unique and unmistakable "Terroir". On the opposite side of Montalcino to the south-east, near Castelnuovo dell'Abate we find the "Pietradonice"vineyard. The earth, the position, the microclimate, the choice of clones, the grafting and a well organised vineyard all help to produce great grapes which improve each year. Il terreno, l'esposizione, il microclima, la scelta dei cloni, portainnesti, sesto di impianto ci stanno dando delle grandi uve ogni anno migliori. In a single word - magnificent. PLast but not least, thanks to its fine landscape and uncontaminated nature is the "Cetine" vineyard. Here we have 25 hectares facing south south-east on a magical hillside near Sant'Angelo in Colle. The thyme and other plants typical of the Mediterranean scrub and the extreme drop in temperature at night contribute to give us fruit of incredible quality. Every year this Sangiovese gives us the hope and strength to become even better. Fantastic and magic. . Read less

Intense on the nose with black cherry fruit. Accented with hints of leather and herbs, along with lots of sexy, toasty oak. Extracted in the mouth, this has a nice, austere heart with attractive earth and leather notes. The fruit is very front loaded, leaving the oak to carry the back end, which it does with sweet, toasty spice. The finish here turns extracted, bitter and hot. Time may be kind to this, but today it’s rough going. 87pts

Color, this wine has a nice and light, classic Brunello di Montalcino, seductive. Nose, very aromatic!, very complex, a lot of black fruits coming through, tar, dry leaves, earthiness. the nose is exemplary, WOW. Midpalate, this is the major drawback of this wine. the midpalate is water thin, very light, hallow, not what you'd expect from the nose. Finish, nice firm tannins, lingering, complex, dry fruits are dominating, and dancing on my palate. Overall, this wine is acceptable but is obviously overrated! this is no way a 100 pointer. I am 93 on this effort. Happy drinking!

A andldquo;Wow!andrdquo; wine on every level. This is a lovely, dark, smooth and rich expression that is packed tight with intensity and personality. The biggest, boldest wine by far from Montalcinoandrsquo;s 2006 vintage, this bottle will age nicely and add value to your cellar collection.

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is fabulous in this vintage. Waves of dark fruit caress the palate as this juicy, delicious wine reveals its considerable charms. The fruit shows lovely weight and richness while maintaining an essentially mid-weight p... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

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.

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova, from newer vineyards near Castelnuova dell-Abate in the southern part of Montalcino, is sweeter, spicier, and weightier on the nose, with the aromas given additional push and penetration from the alcohol. The important volume and length, the solidity of the structure, and dense, liquorice-laden finish are those of a wine destined for long life. Drink: 2005-2018.

So much ripe fruit here with currants and sultanas, yet fresh and very clean. Dark berries too. Incredible ripe Sangiovese character. Full body, with masses of fruit and chewy tan nins. Plus, there's black licorice and dried berries. Give it time to ... James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova 750ml

A potentially perfect red. It shows dark fruits with prunes, blackberries, and blueberries on the nose. Insane intensity. Full and dense with thick, yet super-polished and velvety tannins. Incredible length and depth. Amazing. Such great acidity and... James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto 750ml
