The Wine Advocate 95 points - "This is another fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a deeply layered expression with bold tones of dark fruit that are softened and enhanced by spice, leather, tobacco and balsam herb. The wine is very beautiful and polished with slightly less depth and complexity compared the outstanding (100 point) vintage that precedes it. Despite the vintage variation, this is a wine of enormous pedigree and importance. It is generous and confident with a presentation that offers purity, intensity and persistence. "


James Suckling 94 points - "A red with earthy, meaty, salty, ripe fruit aromas and flavors. Full body with round, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. So much richness and depth. Needs at least a year or two to come together."


Vinous / Antonio Galloni 93 points- "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is dark, sensual and inviting, with lovely textural depth and fine balance. Macerated dark cherry, plum, smoke, lavender and spice flesh out in a succulent, expressive Brunello that should drink well with minimal cellaring."


This wine is sourced from the vineyards located on the the southern slope of Montalcino - “Pietradonice” and “Le Cetine” - and from one of the estate's massal selections of Sangiovese. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 30 months, 18 months in bottle. Casanova di Neri was established in 1971 when Giovanni Neri acquired a large estate within Montalcino. Since then his primary goal has been to find land optimal for growing high quality grapes. In 1991, his son Giacomo took over direction of the estate and winemaking. His 138 acres are divided into four distinct areas: Pietradonice in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Cetine in Sant’Angelo in Colle, Cerretalto and Fiesole. As the grapes have improved in quality, more care and attention has been given to the winemaking process - from vinification to the careful selection and use of casks - but always with the maximum respect for tradition. The winery’s Brunello production is divided between three different labels in order to best represent each area’s unique characteristics.
