Casanova di Neri Rosso di Montalcino 2009

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.

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 and young red cherry start with a long explosive, again young long finish. Decanted and enjoyed.

I tasted the 2009 Rosso di Casanova di Neri from tank just before it was scheduled to be bottled. The wine shows gorgeous juiciness and richness with a round harmonious personality that captures the essence of the house style. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015. --- AG Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
