Casanova di Neri, Brunello di Montalcino 2015 Bottle size: 750mlItaly, Tuscany
'Good deep red. Saline aromas and flavors of red cherry, blueberries, herbs, blood orange and sweet spices. Smooth and long on the bright, very sweet finish. Really quite good.' – Ian D'Agata, Vinous, 94/100 (Apr 2020)
'The Casanova di Neri estate is located in the northeastern zone of Torrenieri. Besides five distinct sites there, the Neri family also has three vineyards in the south between the villages of Sant'Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell'Abate. The 'white label' as this Brunello is called blends plots from the cooler Torrenieri area. It is mid-weight and classy, offering gleaming bright, fresh red cherry flavours. Hints of rust and warm stone as well as subtle sweet spice add complexity. Tactile but fine sandy tannins give appropriate support and the finish is vibrant and perfumed. Drinking Window 2021 - 2035.' – Michaela Morris, Decanter, 94/100
'Tasted blind. Mid to deep ruby. Sweet oak perfumes hovering over fresh fruit. Concentrated and well stitched together on the palate and perfectly balanced. Modernist polish of oak notes on the finish. Long while elegant – a balancing act executed with great skill.' – Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20

|Producer information||Casanova di Neri gets its name from the Casanova Estate of the Neri Family. Founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri and later, in 1991, passed on to his son, Giacomo. Casanova di Neri is one of Montalcino’s most famous wineries. The 500-hectare estate has 63 hectares of vineyards and also grows olives. They describe the identity of their wines as a combination of their soils, exposures, microclimates, and the ages of the vines together with their passion and hard work.|
