About

93

"The 2006 Pietradonice (Cabernet Sauvignon) explodes from the glass with the essence of blackberry jam, French oak, grilled herbs and cassis. This super-ripe, opulent wine offers tons of elegance and finesse in a full-bodied style. The tannins are firm but ripe, and beautifully balanced by the wine's radiant, warm fruit. This is a gem from proprietor Giacomo Neri. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026." (06/09)

"This full, plump and generous Cabernet Sauvignon offers loads of ripe fruit, smoothness and intensity. If you love rich, sun-filled red wines from Tuscany, this is a perfect choice. In the mouth, you get firm tannins and bright cherry flavors on the close. Excellent. -ML" (10/10)

90 Wine Spectator

"This is very ripe, verging on raisin. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a lot of dried fruits on the palate, like fruitcake. Slightly overdone, but still likeable for its character and richness. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2011. 850 cases made. -JS" (10/09)

Product Description:

WINERY:
"Casanova di Neri was established in 1971 when Giovanni Neri acquired a large estate within Montalcino. Over the years the continuing goal has been the search for land believed to be optimal for growing high quality grapes. There are now 48 hectares of vineyards (120 acres) divided amongst four distinct sites. Improved quality in the vineyards has led to more attention in the winery from vinification to the careful selection of casks for ageing but always with the maximum respect for tradition. Today the property is operated and wines made by Giacomo Neri." -Importer
