This is very tannic and powerful with loads of currants, spices and hints of wood. So much stone and mineral character to this. Violets, too. Full-bodied, tight and structured. Massively dense yet agile and bright. It goes on for minutes. Needs at least three or four years to soften. Try in 2020. Nov 16,
This is a towering achievement. It is delightful on every level. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is an expressive, exuberant and stunning wine that opens to a dark ruby color and rich consistency. The bouquet is never-ending with immediate intensity that is followed closely by finely-tuned aromas of black cherry, spice, grilled herb, clove, tobacco, wet earth and white truffle. A gorgeous display of elegant mineral tones rises from the bouquet with time. Later, those aromas turn to cola, licorice and tar. This wine showed an impressive evolution over the 24 hours I tasted it and delivered solid improvements each time. The mouthfeel is silky and smooth, and there's enough power here to move the wine over the palate in seamless fashion. This is a bottle for the back of your cellar. || This is one of the tastings I had most been looking forward to all year. Giacomo Neri and his son Giovanni produced one of my favorite wines in 2015 (the 100 point Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova). In addition to the wines reviewed here, I had the opportunity to organize the most complete vertical of Cerretalto (1981-2010) ever in the history of that single vineyard wine. It was also the last vertical to be staged at Casanova di Neri, because four of the vintages in that collection are now gone forever from the winery library. Because I don't want to distract from these new releases, I will publish my Cerretalto vertical after this Brunello report comes out. In the meantime, I spent a lot of time studying Casanova di Neri's current releases. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is a perfect wine save for the fact that I liked the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova just a tiny fraction of a micro percentage more. I tasted both wines together blind in every configuration I could think of and went through six bottles to be extra sure of my findings. I tasted them both immediately after opening the bottles and then at different intervals up to 24 hours later. The 2010 Cerretalto is arguably a more complete and a deeper wine, but it also feels slightly more propped up by that extra year of cellar aging and more pronounced oak spice. I loved the free and unhinged nature of Tenuta Nuova that exudes its true Sangiovese personality. Cerretalto, on the other hand, excels in terms of intensity, quality and winemaking, but it doesn't reflect the territory of Montalcino, to my mind, as faithfully as Tenuta Nuova. If the Montalcino signature is less important to you, you may well prefer Cerretalto. Either way, you can't go wrong with anything Casanova di Neri has produced in the exceptional 2010 vintage.

Effusive and fresh, this red shows black currant, cherry, strawberry, cedar and leather aromas and flavors. Rich and concentrated, turning more elegant with air. The oak becomes more integrated after a few hours and the long finish picks up elements of mineral and tobacco. Best from 2018 through 2033. 825 cases made. Jun 16,
