2009 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova Casanova di Neri

Average critic rating : 92.0 points



From vineyards in the southern part of the appellation, the 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova does show some of the hallmarks of the warm vintage. Compared to the base Brunello, the aromas here are slightly less delineated and you do get whiffs of overtly ripe raspberry and blackberry that intermingle with exotic tones of Asian spice, licorice and incense. In the mouth, the wine’s fabric is lush and rich with sweet tannins and opulent consistency. It needs a few more years to flesh out. Drink: 2016-2025. ||Bouncing around in a dusty Jeep, Giacomo Neri takes me to visit his beloved Tenuta Nuova vineyard located in the most wild and rustic southeast corner of the appellation. As the Jeep navigates wildly around rocky bluffs and splashes through muddy puddles left by the morning’s showers, Giacomo seems unfocused on the obstacle-strewn path before him. With one arm pointing out the window he lists the scientific names of the various shrubs and bushes that go whizzing past. A wild hare appears in our sights and Giacomo accelerates to award me a closer look at the local fauna. One of Montalcino’s most polarizing figures, Giacomo Neri is many things: he is an obsessively quality-minded vintner, a clever businessman and a trailblazer who is largely responsible for introducing the concept of “modern Brunello.” Call it “Brunello 2.0” if you will. But on this overcast winter afternoon, Giacomo Neri is one of the many proud offspring born from mother Montalcino. Wine Advocate.February, 2014

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.
