Casanova di Neri Sangiovese Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

"Red Wine Italian Red by Casanova di Neri from Tuscany, Italy. Balanced and refined. Berry, tobacco and mineral aromas last for minutes on the palate. Full-bodied, with lots of silky tannins. A beauty. Best after 2006. -Wine Spectator ... "

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

[BFMS] Not decanted, drank over 3 hours. Started overwhelmingly earthy with mushroom and leather on the nose and palate. After ~1.5 hours mor restrained earth on the nose, on the palate more modern qualites, plum, coffee, chocolate, mushroom, very thick and rich. At the end of the bottle, become a little more femine and restrained with plum and spearmint. Overall a very enjoyable wine. KAB loved it. Bought a couple more. Drinking nicely now but need 2 hrs decanting; will improve with time.
