  • Although a relative newcomer (it was founded in 1971), trendsetting Casanova di Neri Winery has become one of the most-respected wineries of Montalcino if not in Italy. This family-run cellar owes its success to a solid track record of powerful, luxuriant Brunellos and to the exclusive crus, Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto (the crown-jewel of the estate). Casanova di Neri's wines are pungent, complex super high quality wines that can age well for decades.

Kyle Phillips’ Italian Wine Review: "Deep ruby with cherry rim, suggests youth. The bouquet is powerful, and still somewhat disjointed, with strong spice, in particular mace and cinnamon, laced with vanilla and supported by cherry blossom and some plum and hints of balsam. Very fresh, surprisingly so for a Brunello. On the palate it's moderately full, with lots of fruit, in part plum, that has a fair amount of sweetness, though the wine is dry; the tannins are sweet and have a Sangiovese burr laced with vanilla, and flowing into a clean plum-and-cherry fruit finish with tannic overtones. An amazingly languid wine that needs time to settle; it gives an impression of being caught in mid-stride, and it will be very interesting to see where it goes. High places in any case. Well worth seeking out, to enjoy with red meats of the grill." (Mar 2007)
