    Dark ruby. The 1999 Cerretalto is an unforgettable wine. Boasting tremendous concentration, this potent Brunello exudes vibrant layers of tar, scorched earth, licorice, mineral and dark fruit that captivate the taster in an extraordinary display of power and finesse. Constantly revealing new shades of nuance as it opens in the glass, it is one of the most unique and utterly compelling wines I tasted. I imagine it will still offer great drinking at age twenty.

    Lovely berry and cherry character with plenty of plums and lightly toasted oak. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Very fresh and exciting. Extremely fine, long tannins. Goes on for minutes. This is always a top-notch single-vineyard wine. 1,500 cases made.

  • 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.
