Description

This is another fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a deeply layered expression with bold tones of dark fruit that are softened and enhanced by spice, leather, tobacco and balsam herb. The wine is very beautiful and polished with slightly less depth and complexity compared the outstanding (100 point) vintage that precedes it. Despite the vintage variation, this is a wine of enormous pedigree and importance. It is generous and confident with a presentation that offers purity, intensity and persistence. 95+/100 RP

Producer Information: Casanova di Neri

Casanova di Neri was founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri, a 48-year-old selected grain and seed merchant, who decided to leave the city of Montevarchi, in the Arno valley south of Florence, to embark on a great adventure. Passionate about wine for many years, Giovanni Neri has a dream, to be able to produce a great Italian red wine. Although the renowned lands of Chianti Classico are just a few steps from where he grew up, it is the austerity of the Sangiovese that grows in Montalcino and its unpredictability that fascinates him.
During his numerous trips to Montalcino, it is only one property, among the many for sale, that attracts his attention. Podere Casanova. A property of about 200 hectares, east of the city. Wine is still a marginal part of production and is mostly sold in bulk. Giovanni Neri understands, however, that thanks to the altitude, the characteristics and the composition of the soil, that place has the potential to produce a great Brunello. In May 1971 he bought Podere Casanova, changing its name to Casanova di Neri.
At Casanova de Neri they believe that the most beautiful expression of wine is obtained from the perfect combination of a few elements. Roots that sink into extraordinary soils, vines that grow healthy thanks to their unique exposure.
