2016 casanova di neri, brunello di montalcino, cerretalto
Why We're Buying
The Cerretalto represents the heart and soul of Casanova di Neri. The 100% sangiovese highlights the unique terroir of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, with the 2010 vintage earning a perfect rating from wine critic James Suckling and praise as a "towering achievement" from wine critic Monica Larner.
Wow. Incredible purity and transparency with cherries, bark, mushroom, flower and slate/stone on the nose. Full-bodied yet agile and fresh with a fine tannin structure that runs the length of the wine and goes on forever. The polish, elegance and grace is breathtaking. Power with agility. A revelation for the 2016 vintage in Brunello. Drink in 2024 and onwards but wonderful to taste now.
