Tasting Notes:

"Luminous deep red. Captivating aromas of sweet red berries, cinnamon, violet and licorice. Then also very fruity in the mouth; refined, juicy red plum and raspberry flavors linger brightly on the fresh back end. Has a delightful red fruit cocktail quality that makes it practically impossible to put the glass back down. And though it is simply bursting at the seams with early appeal, this truly lovely Brunello will also age well. Unless my memory fails me, this may well be the best entry-level wine from Casanova di Neri that I have ever tasted." AG

Giacomo Neri has grown his winery into one of Montalcino’s most famous, known worldwide. The farm “Casanova di Neri” was founded in 1971 when Giovanni Neri bought a large estate within the Montalcino territory. The farm has grown to 55 hectares of vineyards, situated all over the area surrounding Montalcino, some to the north but mostly near the old Castelnuovo dell’Abate onyx quarry and on the eastern slope of lower central Sesta.

The Casanova di Neri vineyards, set on the various slopes of Montalcino, are influenced by radical differences in soil, microclimate and surrounding vegetation, while maintaining a maximum separation of just one kilometer. The grapes for Brunello “White Label” are harvested during the first 2 weeks of September. Brunello “White Label” is born in vineyards that look to Montalcino from the east, at an altitude which varies from 350 to 480 metres above sea level.

After the grapes are harvested, exclusively by hand, the bunches are taken to the cellar, where they are inspected on the sorting table to remove any parts considered unsuitable for the high quality to be reached. Subsequently a machine removes the stalk from the grapes, which drop onto another sorting table. The selected grapes are then taken by gravity to tanks, where the vinification process begins. Fermentation and Maceration last approximately 21 days.

By law, Brunello di Montalcino has to spend an ageing period of at least 24 months in oak barrels and can be released for sale only after 5 years have elapsed since the grape harvest. Brunello “White Label” is matured in big barrels for 42 months, followed by six months in the bottle, Tenuta Nuova matures for 30 months in oak casks and 18 months in the bottle, Cerretalto spends 27 months in small barrels and 30 months in the bottle.
