Winemaker Notes

#1 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006

This Brunello di Montalcino is aged in Slavonian oak barrels for about 30 months and in the bottle for a year. It was born in their historic vineyards. Its constant high quality is further enhanced by its elegance and finesse. The vineyards lie to the south of Montalcino, a zone of Brunello marked by warmer micro-climates and intense, powerful wines.

Critical Acclaim

WS 97
Wine Spectator

Dark color with intense blackberry, chocolate and lightly toasted oak. Full-bodied and ultravelvety, with caressing tannins. Vanilla, chocolate and berry. Goes on for minutes.

JS 97
James Suckling

There is so much ripe fruit here with a decadent richness that is just crazy. Verges on raisins but it goes instead to pure fruit. Very full and velvety with a long finish. I love this.

V 92
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is Neri’s modern-styled Brunello. It is made from vines planted in the southern part of the zone and aged in small oak barrels. It displays a darker, almost saturated color and notable concentration with masses of sweet dark fruit, smoke and licorice flavors that flow onto the palate with exceptional length and balance in a powerful, brooding style. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

A beautiful showing thanks to rich red fruit, pomegranate, blackberry, plum, menthol and heavy toasted notes such as clove, vanilla, almond and coconut. Rich, supple and inky, this is a big, bold wine that should be opened 5–10 years from now. Imported by William Grant & Sons, Inc.

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

From a vineyard in the southwestern zone of Montalcino (CK), Tenuta Nuova was planted in (CK). It produced a soft, lush wine in 2001, packed with cherry flavor and floral accents. Tannin keeps it directed, tightening the finish, suited to several years of age.

Casanova di Neri
Casanova di Neri was established in 1971 when Giovanni Neri acquired a large estate within Montalcino.
