2011 casanova di neri, brunello di montalcino, tenuta nuova

Why We're Buying

Casanova di Neri had a vision for creating the best Brunello. Tenuta Nuova is that reality. The 100% sangiovese wine, which translates to "new property," serves as a more than respectable 1B to Cerretalto's 1A.

James Suckling

A red with earthy, meaty, salty, ripe fruit aromas and flavors. Full body with round, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. So much richness and depth. Needs at least a year or two to come together.

Wine Spectator

Lively, laced with cherry, raspberry, licorice and mineral flavors. The fine harmony allows this to linger on the aftertaste. Should develop well. Best from 2018 through 2029.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This is another fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a deeply layered expression with bold tones of dark fruit that are softened and enhanced by spice, leather, tobacco and balsam herb. The wine is very beautiful and polished with slightly less depth and complexity compared the outstanding (100 point) vintage that precedes it. Despite the vintage variation, this is a wine of enormous pedigree and importance. It is generous and confident with a presentation that offers purity, intensity and persistence.
