More Vintages and Sizes of Casanova di Neri - Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto:
International Wine Cellar
Author: Ian D'Agata
Issue: Issue 169
(15% alcohol): Bright deep ruby. Deep aromas of redcurrant, camphor, dried flowers and sweet spices. Broad and sweet on entry, but with building vinosity framing the flavors of chocolatey redcurrant, spices, camphor and rose petal. Still youthfully closed today but already quite suave, with complicating flinty minerality. Finishes with serious palate-saturating breadth and big, broad tannins. This might be the first time that I actually liked a young Cerretalto, a wine that in the past was far too full of graphite and other aromas and flavors I don't want in my glass of sangiovese (IWC readers will remember I rated the 2001 only 89 points). Owner Giacomo Neri says the graphite is a characteristic of this particular vineyard, but I am glad to see this quality being expressed to a lesser degree in recent Cerretalto vintages. I'm very glad to report that in the 2007 vintage, Cerretalto is firing on all cylinders.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is racier and more polished at this stage than the 2006. It boasts superb aromatics, silky tannins and extraordinary textural finesse. I imagine the 2007 will be immensely appealing upon release. Today it is stunning.

Pure cherry and blackberry fruit mingles with mineral, spice and
earth notes in this modern-styled red. Graphite elements emerge
as the bright acidity and dusty tannins drive the lingering finish.
Fresh, focused and long, with fine complexity and seamless texture.
