"Effusive aromas and flavors of raspberry, cherry, floral, mineral and tobacco are at the center of this linear, vibrant red. Well-structured, this offers terrific length on the sinewy finish. Best from 2020 through 2035."

93 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Casanova di Neri is one of the shining stars of Montalcino. Each successive vintage released brings us renewed understanding of the focus and the dedication demonstrated by the father and son team that operates this estate. The winemaking style is impeccable and elaborate. There's a higher degree of texture and richness on display, and this is not often the case with Sangiovese. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino opens to thick layers of dark fruit, mocha, spice, leather, cigar box and pipe tobacco. A distant note of dried fruit or blackberry confit adds softness and sweetness. Give this wine a few more years to flesh out and integrate."

Product Description:

"Our wines, obtained solely from grapes that come from our vineyards, are the fruit firstly of our vineyard projects and secondly of manic care throughout the process of vinification.

The uniqueness and heterogeneity of the soils and microclimates in the different slopes of Montalcino have led us to produce 8 wines, each with its specific peculiarities but all of them true to the Casanova di Neri and Montalcino style.

Our Brunello di Montalcino is the expression of a territory and the specific subdivision that it is made up of. Our classic Brunello with its Casanova di Neri stamp and its white label was the first to be produced and is the expression of the most elegant Sangiovese of Casanova di Neri." - Winery
