100% Sangiovese (also known as 'Brunello' in its native region)This wine is sourced from vineyards located on the southern slope of Montalcino - “Pietradonice” and “Le Cetine” - and from one of the estate's massal selections of Sangiovese. Fermentation and maceration lasts 23 days. The wine is then aged in neutral oak barrels for 42 months followed by 6 months aging 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.
