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!

Beautiful blackberry and chocolate, with hints of Indian spices. Full, with polished and refined tannins and a long finish. Best after 2013. James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 750ml

Dark, bright red. Dark berries, mocha, brown spices and smoky oak on the nose. Supple and fairly dense, with a youthfully medicinal cast to the black cherry and licorice flavors. In a distinctly brooding style and in need of patience - and perhaps a bit more lift. Finishes with serious building tannins that dust the front teeth.

Lighter in style and consistency than this producer's past Brunellos, this wine represents a return to Montalcino tradition. Aromas include red cherry, wet earth, white mushroom and tobacco. In the mouth, the wine is tight, firm and long lasting.

The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is quite a bit darker and richer than the straight Brunello. Cherries, plums, spices and French oak meld together beautifully in this silky, textured red. In 2005 the Tenuta Nuova boasts fabulous overall balance in a fairly restrained style for this bottling. Kirsch, roses and spices linger on the dark, enveloping finish. This is a terrific effort from Casanova di Neri. The Tenuta Nuova is made from vineyards in Le Cetine and Pietradonice, both located in the southern part of Montalcino. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.

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 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a big, fruit-driven wine. Made in a concentrated, opulent style, this Brunello offers tons of fruit and a round, soft personality. There isn't too much nuance in the wine today, but that should develop in bottle. The long, polished finish invites a second taste. For now, this remains one of the more overtly fruit-forward wines of the vintage. The entry-level Brunello spends roughly 40 months in large, neutral oak. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2019.
