  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

    A rich style, boasting macerated cherry and raspberry, leather and licorice flavors. Starting to meld with the dense tannins, which are mouthcoating and almost chewy on the long finish. This has excellent intensity, with a serious seam of mineral that permeates the aftertaste. 863 cases made.

    Aromas of ripe strawberries, sandalwood, and flowers follow though to a full body, with soft tannins and a fruity finish. This is so long and gorgeous, with intense fruit and a defined and beautiful structure. Amazing fruit at the finish. Gorgeous now, but will age beautifully. The palate builds and show such depth. So wonderful now, but better in 2015.

    Bright, deep red. Liqueur-like aromas of creme de cassis , black cherry, blackberry, minerals and spices turned a bit pruney in the glass. Sweet, plush and superripe, with complementary sexy oak. This liqueur-like, powerfully structured wine verges on heavy, and its tannins will require time to mellow in bottle.

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto emerges from the glass with layers of beautifully delineated dark fruit, flowers, mint, licorice and violets. It possesses terrific richness and nuance in a full-bodied, structured style that captures the essence of this great vintage. Big, powerful tannins provide the backdrop for expressive, super-ripe aromas and flavors. The 2006 needs time to soften, but it is immensely promising.

    Big and bold with thick, heavy tannins that soften with decanting. Leathery, tobacco and coffee. Paired well with homemade pasta.

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.
