Member Reviews for Brunello di Montalcino-Cru Tenuta Nuova Casanova di Neri Trocken Montalcino ItalienAdd your review
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.
It will blow your mind. This is a unbelievable bottle that keeps getting better and better. IF you do not have this in your cellar, you will be dissapointed at the lack there of in the future. It is an amazing bottle from one of the personal favorite and great producers of italy.....
External Reviews for Brunello di Montalcino-Cru Tenuta Nuova Casanova di Neri Trocken Montalcino Italien
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.
