The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova reveals layers of dark perfumed fruit intermingled with French oak, spices, minerals, violets and licorice. The Tenuta Nuova is impressive mostly for its textural richness and sheer depth, both qualities it has in spades. The finish is long, sweet and pure. Here, too, the wine will need at least a few years in bottle before its full range of aromas and flavors emerges. Neri gave the Tenuta Nuova 30 months in medium-sized French oak tonneaux. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2024. ||Giacomo Neri is one of Montalcino’s more gregarious producers. His passion clearly comes through in these wines, which are characterized by an emphasis on fruit and opulence. Neri’s Brunellos also make a great case study in the different microclimates of Montalcino. His straight Brunello di Montalcino is made from vineyards ranging from 350-480 meters in altitude located in the northeastern quadrant of the region. The Tenuta Nuova is made from a densely-planted vineyard located roughly in between Sant’Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell’Abate, in the southern part of the zone. The vines in the north typically flower three weeks later than those in the south, and naturally ripen later as well, which serves to highlight some of the differences between Montalcino’s various microclimates. Neri’s 2004 Brunellos are immensely successful. I look forward with great anticipation to the 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto, which should be released some time next year.

Casanova di Neri is a family-run Italian wine producer, located in Montalcino, Tuscany. They are best known for producing Brunello di Montalcino, including the critically acclaimed wines Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto. The family also produce a concentrated and complex Cabernet Sauvignon, called Pietradonice. The estate was founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri who later passed the winery to his son Giacomo in 1991. The production began with the Cerretalto vineyard, a unique piece of land with a natural amphitheatre and old Sangiovese vines that still produce wine for the top cuvees. After considerable research, the family continued to acquire land and now own 60 hectares of vineyards as well as 16 hectares of olive groves. Stylistically, Giacomo Neri describes the wines as being traditional in an innovative and modern way. The wines have received great accolades from the press, notably for the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova which received a 100 point score from Robert Parker and 99 points from James Suckling.
