Casanova di Neri Brunello Tenuta Nuova 2005
External Reviews for Casanova di Neri Brunello Tenuta Nuova
92 Points - The Wine Advocate"The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is soft and pleasing in its generous dark fruit and expressive bouquet. Plums, flowers and spices frame the long finish. In 2005 the straight Brunello is particularly successful, no doubt in part because it contains the fruit from Cerretalto, which was not made that year. Interestingly, this is a wine that doesnt usually attract much attention. Value-conscious buyers should be on the lookout for deals on this gorgeous 2005 Brunello. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020."Winemaker's notes:The wine is very powerful with great fruit, acidity and is also pretty tannic right now (even with the air time). I tasted tart cherries, raspberries and plums all rolled into one. The grapes for this wine come from the Cetine vineyard which is located on the south side of Montalcino. That is where the power of Tenuta Nuova comes from.
