Tasting NotesBright red, young, and intense. The aroma is pleasantly fresh with scents of dark fruit, exotic white fruit, and hints of spices. On the palate, depth blends with the perfectly ripe tannins, a symbol of an exceptional vintage such as 2016. The finish is greatly balanced, revealing the excellent aging potential.

95 points Wine SpectatorShows fine depth, with cherry, black currant, and wild herb flavors, accented by iron, earth, leather, and tobacco notes. Muscular, despite a slim frame, with a long, savory aftertaste. Best from 2024 through 2045.

The DomainCasanova di Neri farm was founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri following the purchase of an estate in the Montalcino area. Since the founder's passing in 1991, his son Giacomo has headed the company, managing the vineyards and the cellar himself, now assisted by his sons Giovanni and Gianlorenzo, an example of continuity in the family tradition. Since the beginning, Casanova di Neri’s philosophy has been based on zonation and pursuing the best terroirs to research and enjoy the best vineyards of the Montalcino area in order to produce unique and distinctive wines, with great character. Today the 75 hectares of vineyards are divided into six distinct areas that originate unique terroirs: Pietradonice south-east of Montalcino, Cetine to the south, Cerretalto to the east, and Fiesoe north-east, this vineyard is located near the winery and homonymous cottage in front of Montalcino, and the Podernuovo which boasts the highest position on the farm, at 480 meters above sea level.

The cellar is partially underground and allows the grapes and wine to be processed by gravity. The two storage spaces for the barrels and the room for aging bottles are entirely underground with naturally constant humidity and temperature. The property is set in amazingly beautiful countryside and respects the surrounding landscape. The excellent quality of the vineyards, the discipline, and utmost care for the vines, blended with our passion and experience have resulted in the production of unique wines of great character, with their own well-defined style, never conditioned by fleeting tastes and fashions. Over the years, the combination of all these elements has brought a continuous string of accolades by the most important national and international opinion leaders.

Casanova di Neri now produces eight labels. Three are Brunello wines, each with its own characteristics: White Label Brunello, Brunello Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto Brunello, along with Rosso di Montalcino, Irrosso, Pietradonice, Ibbiano and Irrosè
