Tasting Notes:

At first sight, Tenuta Nuova 2013 already shows its potential from the bright red color. The bouquet is very expressive and intense, with notes of young red fruit, blackberry and the typical balsamic. In the mouth is full body, persistent and rich, with silky tannins and a superb lenght. A combination of elegance and power, it should be opened at least 2 hours in advance or alternatively decanting gently.

Tenuta Nuova is a pioneering and visionary vineyard project emboding the belief and passion of Casanova di Neri. Tenuta Nuova means new property; Tenuta Nuova is a place where nobody planted Sangiovese before; Tenuta Nuova is the will of Casanova di Neri to produce a powerful yet drinkable Brunello with a high ageing potential. The project began with the study of varied local microclimates and their optimal exposures. Through a cautious and passionate research Casanova di Neri has used the most sophisticated scientific investigations to determine the clones, rootstocks, cultivation practices, plant density per hectare and every possible particular to obtain excellent Sangiovese grapes.

2013 began with a delayed budding and flowering, that turned out to be perfect for the following summer, with cool temperatures and sunny days. Rainfall was well spread out all over the season. This is why the ripening process was slow and steady, producing grapes with balanced and beautiful aromatic expressions.

Manual selection of the grapes before and after destemming, followed by a spontaneus fermentation without the addition of artificial yeast. Maceration is assisted by a falling down system, and everything is carried out inside open cone-shaped and temperature controlled fermenters for 24 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.
