In recent years the barrique-aged Pietradonice, a blend of 90% Cabernet and 10% Sangiovese from vines planted at Castelnuovo dell'Abate has become one of the region's most promising Cabernet-based wines. The 2003 vintage was exceptionally hot and although this wine shows attractive super-ripe dark fruit intermingled with notes of cassis, it is penalized by the hard tannins of fruit that did not reach full phenolic ripeness. The vines are young, however, and there is much to look forward to here.

Gorgeous aromas of violets, blackberries and dark cherries follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Balanced and rich. This has loads of character. And opulent style. Almost New World-like. Cabernet Sauvignon with a dash of Sangiovese.

About This Producer


The Casanova di Neri farm began in 1971 when Giovanni Neri bought a large estate within the territory of Montalcino. Over the years their continuing goal has been the search for and purchasing of land which they believe to be optimal for growing high quality grapes. The result is that today they have about 36 hectares of vineyards divided between four quite distinct areas: il Pietradonice in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, le Cetine in Sant'Angelo in Colle, il Cerretalto and il Fiesole near the farmhouse of the same name facing Montalcino.

Recent accolades include a perfect WS 100-point score for the 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto and WS Wine of the Year honors for the 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova.
