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

Bright red ruby in color with scents of caramel and alcohol. Up front flavors of cherries and plum. Tannins are still pretty strong on the finish but a nice wine overall.

I had the opportunity to taste this, today. It is a thing of beauty, but will be better in the years to come! There is tar and roses present on the nose. The palate is still tight. I can tell that the quality is here.

    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 personality. Sweet scents of French oak linger on the round, caressing, impeccable finish. This is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next decade-plus. The harvest took place from the 2nd to the 5th of October. The wine spent 24 days on the skins, after which it was racked into cask, where it spent 45 months prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2024.

    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.

    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: 2010ndash;2022.

    Saturated ruby-red. Low-toned aromas of roasted black fruits, licorice pastille and chocolate verge on port-like. Silky on entry, then fat and thick in the middle, with a pruney quality to the highly concentrated flavors of dark raspberry, dried currant and nutty oak. Finishes with notes of raisins and walnuts, a bit in the style of dry port. Undeniably mouth coating wine but I find it lacking in energy mdash; and I would never have identified it as sangiovese.

    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 1998 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a better balanced, softer, sweeter wine than its 1997 counterpart. Nevertheless, it needs to be drunk over the next 5ndash;6 years as it does not have the necessary depth to age longer. An attractive, evolved perfume of smoke, ashtray, cedar, tobacco, and red currants is followed by a medium-bodied Brunello with no hard edges (unlike its 1997 sibling).

    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: 2005ndash;2018.
