The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto comes from a more challenging vintage for Casanova di Neri with a cooler growing season and more moisture. In fact, the mouthfeel here is noticeably thinner compared to the stunning wines made from this vineyard in 2007 and 2006. Cerretalto is so immensely soft and luscious it is almost too much of a good thing. Rich spice, cherry, chocolate and crushed granite wrap thickly around the palate. Drink: 2017-2026. ||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
