Casanova di Neri. Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Rosso di Montalcino is aged in wood for 12 to 15 months. This wine is the proof that Sangiovese in Montalcino can produce quality wines to be drunk immediately even though there is a marked improvement by waiting a couple of years. www.casanovadineri.com

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

Reddish brown hue. Relatively light bodied for what it was, mineralities but not much. Sour berries again which seem to be a recurring theme in Tuscany tastings. Very dry.

Reddish brown hue. Very dry. So dry that that is the only thing I can think of every time I taste. I might just not understand that it is young. It is definitely not for drinking now if that is the case. For more on the Tuscany vs All French, visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/04/tuscany-versus-all-french-tasting.html

This is not the perfect 100-point 2006, but damn close. Loads of black cherries and spices on the nose. Full-bodied, with a beautiful core of fruit. Long and gorgeous finish. This is so long and beautiful to taste. Lasts for minutes. Try after 2015. James Suckling.

Effusive aromas of ripe cherry, plum tart and cedar lead to a macerated cherry flavor, with plenty of spice accents as this gains steam. Just a touch hot on the balance now, with assertive tannins, yet this blossoms after a few hours in the glass. Best from 2015 through 2030.

A gorgeous new release from one of our favorite Brunello producers - Casanova Di Neri. A pitch-perfect growing season allowed the vines to ripen beautifully, producing grapes with fantastic aromatics and lush, plush mouthfeel.

Medium red. Very rich aromas of plum, mocha, dried flowers, underbrush and leather, along with a liqueur-like suggestion of marc de Chateauneuf. Supple, plush and highly concentrated, with superripe fruit flavors slightly leavened by harmonious acidity. A distinctly viscous, fruit-driven wine that could use a bit more class and definition but will please fans of outsized Brunello. Finishes with a bit of youthful aggressiveness.
