The estate was founded by Giovanni Neri, a grain merchant from south of Florence, who purchased the 200 hectare Casanova farm on the eastern side of Montalcino in 1971. The first Brunello bottling was made that year but the first commercial release was produced in 1982. Giovanni’s son Giacomo took over in 1991 and he has now been joined by his own son Giovanni since 2012.

A Tenuta Nuova bottling was first produced from a newly acquired site south of town in 1993. A wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon was also made at this time and further acquisitions were made on the northern slopes. By 2015 the winery was sourcing grapes from six different vineyard locations.

A jeweled ruby color the 2019 Brunello Di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova takes things to the next level at this estate. Offering a deeply layered bouquet of kirsch dark chocolate crushed rosemary and lavender oils on the palate it?s rich with flavors of blood orange oils velvety tannins warming spice and a long finish that soars above and beyond with saline accents taking it to the next level. The bouquet in incredible and keeps going for ages. It spent 36 months in 500-liter used barrels Drink 2026-2046.


Wine Advocate: 97 Points

In my mind this is the wine that best represents the Casanova di Neri house style. With 30 months of aging in tonneaux it shows enormous richness and texture and the stellar fruit quality appears with more primary elegance compared to the more expensive Cerretalto that is released with an extra year of aging. That dynamic is especially pronounced in a comparison of the 2019 and 2018 vintages. The 2019 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova has a dark vein of toasted spice black fruit ink blackberry compote licorice and star anise. Dark as night it is exceptionally well crafted with a robust delivery of concentrated fruit and solid tannic structure. You can count on excellent cellar potential or at a minimum serve it with a classic steak. Production is exactly 69696 bottles.

Wine Spectator: 96 Points

The fruit profile in this red is ripe with boysenberry cherry and raspberry flavors that show shades of earth iron and tobacco. More linear than square with a steely line of acidity and tannins for support. Though balanced this is compact for now with fine length. Best from 2027 through 2043. ?B.S.
