Jeb Dunnuck: 98+ Points

A rich red/garnet color the 2019 Brunello Di Montalcino Giovanni Neri is a muscular and highly expressive moody wine with layered and compelling aromas of cigar box fresh tobacco leaf dried currants worn leather crushed stones and salted orange peel. Mouthwatering and structured it has a chiseled structure with ripe tannins and mouthwatering fresh acidity and it?s long on the palate. It demands time in the cellar before drinking over the coming 20-30 years.


Wine Advocate: 98 Points

Wow this wine steals the show. A new addition to the Casanova di Neri portfolio now in its second year the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino Giovanni Neri pays tribute to Giacomo Neri's father and represents a stylistic shift to the most elegant side of Montalcino. The wine reveals a very nuanced bouquet with toasted cherry pit Luxardo syrup and balsam herb. There is dark slate and stony mineral that dovetail into a very clean and pretty earthiness. The tannins are slightly sweeter compared to other wines from this vintage and there are fragrant tones of heritage rose and lilac. The ratio between tannin and fruit is excellent and I can see this wine aging long into the future. Production is 9600 bottles.

Wine Spectator: 96 Points

This ripe red bursts with plum cherry rose hip and mineral aromas and flavors while a light dusting of tannins and lively acidity provide lift. Balanced pure and long with a beam of cherry persevering on the long aftertaste. Best from 2026 through 2042. ?B.S.
