Brunello van één van de beste producenten. De Casanova di Neri is elegant, karaktervol met hints van vers rood fruit, zacht en een bijzonder lange afdronk. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The bright fruit remains intact in this wine, with plenty of cherry and blackberry, in an encouraging nod to the future cellar potential of this bottle."

"Happy anniversary"

Casanova di Neri behoort tot de nieuwe generatie van Brunello producenten. Het bedrijf is gestart in 1971, toen Giovanni Neri het grootste domein in het Montalcino gebied kocht. Het domein is totaal 39 ha groot en onderverdeeld in 4 wijngaarden. De oudste wijngaard is 45 jaar oud. De wijngaarden liggen op een hoogte van ca. 350 meter boven de zeespiegel.

Casanova di Neri behoort tot één van de beste producenten van de Brunello wijnen. Half september worden de druiven handmatig geoogst. Na de oogst worden de druiven gedurende een periode van 19 dagen gefermenteerd. De verdere rijping van deze wijn geschiedde gedurende een periode van 42 maanden in Slavonisch eiken vaten van 40 en 77 hl., waarna de verdere rijping op de fles nog minimaal een jaar werd vervolgd.

Deze Brunello van grote klasse is vol van geur, met hints van zoete specerijen en rijp fruit.

Lots of clean cherry and plummy character to the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied with dense, chewy tannins and a long finish. Lovely freshness of fruit here, but give the tannins a year or two to sink in. 40th anniversary bottling. Best from 2024.

With a special commemorative label that celebrates its 40th birthday (1978–2018), the Casanova di Neri 2018 Brunello di Montalcino is lush and carefully concentrated to offer intensity and textural richness. The bright fruit remains intact in this wine, with plenty of cherry and blackberry, in an encouraging nod to the future cellar potential of this bottle. Many Brunellos from this vintage reveal faded or dried fruit, but thankfully not this wine. The acidity is mild, falling softly to the background, and the tannins are expertly managed. Only the finish is a bit leaner and quicker than anticipated. The wine ages in large oak casks for 42 months, and this year's production is an ample 105,000 bottles. Happy anniversary.

The Neri family has two new wines to present. The biggest news is the introduction of the top-shelf Brunello di Montalcino Giovanni Neri. The wine—and the vineyard site—is named after Giacomo Neri's dad (and his son), and fruit comes from a seven-hectare vineyard that was planted in 1973 by a farmer named Tocci. After many, many failed attempts, the Neri family was finally able to buy this gem in 2017, despite claims by the old farmer that "he would never sell." Thankfully, he changed his mind. The second wine is the Rosso di Montalcino Giovanni Neri, in production now for four years. In fact, I did a little vertical of all vintages produced so far: 2021, 2020, 2019 and 2018.
