Casanova di Neri Brunello Di Montalcino 2009
Casanova di Neri was established in 1971 when Giovanni Neri acquired a large estate within Montalcino, and over the years acquired land which is now 120 acres of vineyards divided among four separate sites. Today the property is operated and wines made by Giacomo Neri, who states, “Our greatest pride is our vineyards: their high quality and their history.”
Had this beauty at a recent wine tasting. Aged in oak barrels for about 42 months, deep Ruby color with ripe berry fruit aromas and hints of floral scents. On the palate, this full-bodied wine shows cherry and blackberry fruit with complex spice, licorice, tobacco and cacao. Lively acidity with smooth young tannins, smoky oak notes take this wine to a rich lingering finish. Needs a few years to fully develop. Tasting Sample.
