Brunello di Montalcino Casanova di Neri White Label Tuscany 2006
Editorial Reviews for Brunello di Montalcino Casanova di Neri White Label Tuscany
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
Note from tasting: alive and sparkling! [My top rating in the tasting of Sangiovese at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 25 Mar 2012]
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!

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.

A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 750ml
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.
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.
A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova 750ml
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
Balanced and refined. Berry, tobacco and mineral aromas last for minutes on the palate. Full-bodied, with lots of silky tannins. A beauty.
