This wine is from Italy, Tuscany region, Brunello Di Montalcino sub-region. Casanova di Neri was founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri. Located in Montalcino, Italy, the estate has produced exceptional Brunellos since its debut vintage in 1978. The estate is currently run by Giovanni’s son Giacomo, a humble vintner who perpetually searches for ways to improve his wines. Giacomo’s hard work and commitment to the Neri legacy has been duly recognized - in 2006, his Tenuta Nuova was named Wine of the Year by Wine Spectator and his 2001 Brunello Cerretalto was awarded 100 points. The 2006 Brunello Cerretalto was awarded 100 points by wine critic James Suckling. The 120 acre estate is divided into four sites - Pietradonice in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Cetine in Sant’Angelo in Colle, Cerretalto a natural amphitheatre located near the Asso River and Fiesole, the oldest vineyard situated northeast of Montalcino. Giacomo produces three categories of Brunello: the vineyard blend White Label and two single vineyard wines, Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto. All the fruit is hand-picked and the wines age for a minimum of 24 months in oak barrels of varying sizes before release. Casanova di Neri Brunellos are elegant wines that manage to balance wonderful raciness along with great concentration and structure. Each one exhibits Tuscan typicity, crafted in a modern style..
