    • Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2019

      Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2019

      Distinctive bouquet of almonds, plums and sweet cherries. On the palate full of juiciness and elegance. In its balanced and not at all over-concentrated way it is a typical and rousing Rosso di Montalcino with the very typical and fine salt note for Casanova di Neri. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Crushed black cherries and hints of wild strawberry waft up from the 2019 Rosso di Montalcino, with smoky minerals and savory herbs evolving in the glass. Its textures are fleshy and soft, caressing the senses with ripe red fruits, as brisk acids create a juicy expression. Nothing is out of place in this high-energy, fun and fruit-forward Rosso, which finishes wonderfully fresh, framed by a hint of tart berries clinging to the palate." Vinous

    • "Giovanni Neri" Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2018

      “Giovanni Neri” Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2018

      Neri's new and already very serious wine was born with the purchase of a very special vineyard. True to the philosophy of the winery to produce wines only from the best terroirs around Montalcino, the 7 hectare plot of land with over 45 years old vines was finally purchased in 2018. This was preceded by more than 40 years of friendship with the previous owners, with whom Giovanni Neri planted the vines and tended them over the past decades. It is still "only" a Rosso, but in 2023 the new star in the firmament of the Neri range will be born here - a Brunello, which will then set new standards in the appellation in terms of quality, expression and uniqueness.

      Fine fragrance of strawberries, herbs and young leather. Taut and lively on the palate, the Sangiovese fruit is very precisely nuanced, flanked by strong but by no means aggressive tannins. Long and round on the palate and of remarkable freshness and cheerfulness. Will continue to gain in the next few years as it matures further in the bottle. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lively dark red. Perfumed aromas of red berries, spices and flowers, with a whiff of minerals. Vibrant and tangy in the mouth, with lovely acidity nicely framing and lifting the red berry, pepper and spice flavors. Noteworthy fruit purity on the sweetly tannic finish, with the flavors nicely extended thanks to a firm edge of acidity. An absolutely excellent Rosso, made with grapes picked in a roughly 50-year old vineyard that owner Giacomo Neri bought three years ago in the Sesta area." Vinous

      "There is a lot of buzz surrounding the untapped potential of the Rosso di Montalcino appellation, so when you get a new wine from a headline estate like Casanova di Neri, you can really start to bank on that potential. The hope is that many more will forge forward in this direction, giving greater definition and identity to this Brunello-adjacent entry-level wine. The Casanova di Neri 2018 Rosso di Montalcino Giovanni Neri offers a pure window onto Sangiovese from this hamlet in southern Tuscany. Indeed, the grape here is called Brunello or "Sangiovese Grosso" precisely because it tends to offer dark ("bruno") fruit flavors and rich intensity in its most natural state. This is a naked and transparent wine that allows you to accurately taste the so-called bruno in Sangiovese without too many extra bells or whistles. There are savory and wild characteristics with forest fruit, bitter almond, dried herb and balsam herb. That initial wave of aromatics is followed by tilled earth and subtle spice. The wine is named after Giacomo Neri's father, who shares the name Giovanni with his grandson." Robert Parker

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015

      Bright, deep red. In the nose captivating aromas of sweet red berries, cinnamon, violet and liquorice. Fruity and full on the palate: Refined, juicy aromas of red plums and raspberries remain bright and lively at the fresh back end. Neri's 2015 vintage is hard to beat in terms of opulence and complexity. In its price range, it is one of the benchmark wines of the appellation's 5-star vintage for us! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Starts with a lot of esprit on notes of wild berries, wood and spices; the attack is robust, with a nice melting, vifer acidity, the final is refreshing and harmonious." Vinum

      "There’s beauty and drinkability to this wine that really is enticing with blueberry and cherry aromas, as well as hints of hot stone and licorice. Medium to full body, integrated tannins and a fresh and polished finish. Shows focus and brightness. Very drinkable now, but better in a year or two." James Suckling

      "Good deep red. Saline aromas and flavors of red cherry, blueberries, herbs, blood orange and sweet spices. Smooth and long on the bright, very sweet finish. Really quite good." Vinous

      "The Neri family has created a classic expression of Sangiovese from a classic vintage, while remaining faithful to the house style. In a nutshell, these wines always tend to offer dark plum, clove and fig confit over the tiny berry and blue flower aromas you get from the traditionalists. That said, this Brunello needs ample time to open, and I suggest you splash it into the decanter. The Casanova di Neri 2015 Brunello di Montalcino stays safely within your expectation of the vintage with its variety-driven aromas of wild berry, licorice, blue flower and balsam herb. This wine sees fruit sourced from a vineyard on the northeast side of Montalcino, with Galestro soils ranging from 330 to 480 meters above sea level." Robert Parker

      "The Casanova di Neri estate is located in the northeastern zone of Torrenieri. Besides five distinct sites there, the Neri family also has three vineyards in the south between the villages of Sant'Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell'Abate. The 'white label' as this Brunello is called blends plots from the cooler Torrenieri area. It is mid-weight and classy, offering gleaming bright, fresh red cherry flavours. Hints of rust and warm stone as well as subtle sweet spice add complexity. Tactile but fine sandy tannins give appropriate support and the finish is vibrant and perfumed." Decanter

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      Here everything is in the right place: Intense bouquet of sour cherry with nuances of chocolate, spices, licorice and herbs. Energetic and highly vital on the palate. Wonderfully layered and seamlessly integrated dark fruit flavors open up with each sip, paired with a subtle vein of salt. Its tannins are like velvet and silk, the long, sweeping finish revealing that Sangiovese excellence we love so much at Casanova di Neri! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Tile and balsamic aromas with red plums and cherries. Full-bodied with a pretty center palate and ripe, rich fruit. It’s a little timid now, but shows violets, bark and black cherries at the finish." James Suckling

      "Casanova di Neri's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a wine of pleasurable contrasts but also massive structure. Ripe dark fruits and autumnal spices offset savory herbs and hints of animal musk. It enters the mouth silky, cooling and lifted, with a noticeable inner sweetness to its polished cherry/berry flavors, but it then sways more toward inner earth, minerals and grippy tannins. The 2016 urges you to take another sip, as there’s so much upfront appeal; yet each time you do, it reminds you once again that it’s a painfully young Brunello in need of cellaring. That said, the potential here is incredibly high." Vinous

      "The Casanova di Neri 2016 Brunello di Montalcino (or the so-called "white label" Brunello) takes a minute or two to open, and like all these new releases from the Neri family, you're best off opening your bottle five hours before serving them. This classic expression displays raspberry, tar, hazelnut, dried fig, asphalt and some crushed chalk. The wine is streamlined and compact in terms of mouthfeel, giving us an accessible Brunello from a benchmark Montalcino estate." Robert Parker

    • "Pietradonice" Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      “Pietradonice” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      Pietradonice from the dream vintage 2016 is Cabernet Sauvignon on the highest level and meanwhile a legend. Monumental and very concentrated, with hints of sour cherries and a fine note of cedar wood and liquorice. Clearly recognizable as a Montalcino plant, yet with its herb-spicy nature just as typical of Neri and grape varieties. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny, dark ruby. Opened with a pronounced earthy note of slate and truffle, followed by plenty of currants and ripe plums. Juicy at the base and in the course, very well worked out fruit, fine-meshed tannin." Falstaff

      "I am happily impressed by the 2016 Pietradonice. This wine is so easy and pleasant to drink, I'd say it's almost dangerous: The bottle finishes much faster than you'd like. When in Montalcino, there are few alternatives to the local Sangiovese grape, and wines of this quality made with Cabernet Sauvignon can be counted on one hand. Evidently, the potential for others is there. This vintage shows a rich and darkly saturated color followed by ripe aromas of blackberry, plum, spice and sweet tobacco. I am especially impressed by the optimal ripeness of the tannins that gives this wine a smooth and supple approach. This wine could age, but it also performs beautifully straight out the gate. I am a fan." Robert Parker

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Tenuta Nuova" DOCG 2015

      Brunello di Montalcino “Tenuta Nuova” DOCG 2015

      Deep, glowing ruby. In the nose it builds up slowly, we discover deep red cherries, blueberry, some cedar wood, graphite and pepper. Then on the palate it is firm and direct, immediately captivating all the senses with its peppery-salty note, paired with a fruit cocktail and polished tannins, which gives the overall impression an inimitable complexity and originality. It is a demanding wine, which is guaranteed to reward full devotion, and with a few years of bottle maturity will impressively show its full spectrum. The Neri-typical minerality in the finish is especially remarkable and almost unique in the 2015 edition! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Smells promisingly of blackcurrants and Mediterranean maquis; pithy structure, robust tannins, but also much elegance and finesse, powerful finish. Character wine, which convinces with its spiciness, freshness and length. Should still be maturing." Vinum

      "Sparkling ruby with garnet. Fine, clearly drawn nose of raspberry and rose petals, then lots of crisp cherry. On the palate gripping, hearty tannin, salty, very deep and with a lot of tension, in the final firm pressure, very long aftertaste with much present fruit." Falstaff

      "Rich, boasting ripe cherry, plum, incense and wild herb aromas and flavors, this red is expressive and charming. All that up-front appeal is matched by dense yet civilized tannins. Fine balance and a lingering aftertaste of fruit, mineral and savory elements bode well for the future." Wine Spectator

      "Bright full red. Redcurrant, red cherry, violet, sweet spices, and orange zest on the scented nose. Not in the quite sweet and fleshy style this bottling is famous for, but suave and very well delineated, with the orange peel note providing inner-palate lift. Closes very clean with excellent length." Vinous

      "Tenuta Nuova has been produced since 1993. It represents Casanova di Neri's 'newer' vineyard of Le Cetine in the southern reaches of Montalcino which boasts stony galestro soils. This manages the warmth and ripeness of the vintage with tremendous sophistication. Balsamic herbs, Mediterranean shrub, juniper and crushed stone overlay layers of focused, luscious currants and black cherries. A bit of an iron fist in a velvet glove - but much more velvet glove than iron fist. Finishes long and invigoratingly salty." Decanter

      "Giacomo Neri and his family have crafted a wine that impresses from the first sip forward (especially when the wine is given ample time to open). The Casanova di Neri 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova must be treated with patience, and that patience is returned with many great rewards. Blackberry, plum and summer cherry are slowly folded into lasting flavors of spice, leather and beautiful balsam or medical herb. These are always a distinctive signature of this estate. The aromas flow with seamless transitions, and that fluid and ever-changing nature of the bouquet is what helps to build intensity and staying power. Fruit is harvested from a south- and southeast-facing slope at 250 to 300 meters above sea level. The soils are mixed loosely with crushed rock, allowing access to air and moisture. Indeed, pretty mineral accents appear as the wine takes on more air in the glass. What stands out most in this Brunello is the quality of the bouquet that is rigid and firm, yet not excessively so. You feel the structural texture of the wine as it sits firmly over the palate, yet there is mobility and softness to its many moving parts. I tasted this wine at various intervals over a 24-hour period." Robert Parker

      "The purity of fruit in this wine really strikes you with black cherries, combined with sage, lavender and rosemary. Extremely aromatic. Full-bodied, yet so tight and polished with incredible tannin structure that gives the wine an endless mouth feel of caressing tannins, acidity and fruit. There’s a fabulous saltiness and oyster-shell undertone to the fruit. Unique. Drinkable already, but this year there’s the structure to last decades." James Suckling

      Brunello di Montalcino “Tenuta Nuova” DOCG 2016

      If there's one thing Giacomo Neri has mastered, it's picking at optimal ripeness: he knows his property and his vines better than most, and it shows all the more in the top 2016 vintage. The bouquet goes far beyond the standard cherry and blackberry to include plum cake, spice bread and bacon-wrapped plum. Nothing about this wine is obvious or monochromatic. Everything is nuanced and ethereal. Tenuta Nuova 2016 also features the linear mineral and saline notes that are characteristic of this single vineyard. The perfectly formed tannins achieve a suppleness that is second to none. Collectors will want to put this wine aside for ten years or more. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova drawing you in with a display of exotic brown spice, mint and cedar dust. Further coaxing unlocks depths of cherry, plum, hints of dark chocolate and roses. It coasts along a medium-bodied frame with velvety richness, complemented by polished red and black fruits while contrasted by brisk acids and hints of sour citrus. This coats the teeth in concentration, as if you can feel the pulp, seeds and skins of its fruit, while a layer of fine tannin slowly grounds you back to earth. The Tenuta Nuova already has so much to give, yet it will be many years before it reaches its apex. Wow." Vinous

      "This is one of my sweetheart wines from Montalcino. The Casanova di Neri 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova offers a long list of aromas on an ever-shifting and fluid bouquet. You get bright cherry, rose potpourri, black truffle, caramel, butterscotch, sandalwood, road pavement and chalky mineral. In fact, each time I come back to this wine, that mineral element seemed to grow in intensity and scope. The wine offers a grounded fruit side that is contrasted nicely against a grounded oak component. The mouthfeel is creamy and long, and the wine shows terrific tannic integration. When you come back hours later, you might find black olive, bresaola and licorice." Robert Parker

      "Aromas of blackberries, cherries, violets and bark with mahogany. It’s full-bodied and chewy with intense tannins that are layered and focused. The fruit is pure and purposeful, yet not over done. Wonderful strength and purity to this. Class is the word." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016 · MAGNUM in OWC

      Here everything is in the right place: Intense bouquet of sour cherry with nuances of chocolate, spices, licorice and herbs. Energetic and highly vital on the palate. Wonderfully layered and seamlessly integrated dark fruit flavors open up with each sip, paired with a subtle vein of salt. Its tannins are like velvet and silk, the long, sweeping finish revealing that Sangiovese excellence we love so much at Casanova di Neri! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Tile and balsamic aromas with red plums and cherries. Full-bodied with a pretty center palate and ripe, rich fruit. It’s a little timid now, but shows violets, bark and black cherries at the finish." James Suckling

      "Casanova di Neri's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a wine of pleasurable contrasts but also massive structure. Ripe dark fruits and autumnal spices offset savory herbs and hints of animal musk. It enters the mouth silky, cooling and lifted, with a noticeable inner sweetness to its polished cherry/berry flavors, but it then sways more toward inner earth, minerals and grippy tannins. The 2016 urges you to take another sip, as there’s so much upfront appeal; yet each time you do, it reminds you once again that it’s a painfully young Brunello in need of cellaring. That said, the potential here is incredibly high." Vinous

      "The Casanova di Neri 2016 Brunello di Montalcino (or the so-called "white label" Brunello) takes a minute or two to open, and like all these new releases from the Neri family, you're best off opening your bottle five hours before serving them. This classic expression displays raspberry, tar, hazelnut, dried fig, asphalt and some crushed chalk. The wine is streamlined and compact in terms of mouthfeel, giving us an accessible Brunello from a benchmark Montalcino estate." Robert Parker

    About the winemakersCasanova di NeriTuscany | Montalcino
    Casanova di Neri

    Before Giovanni Neri founded the Casanova di Neri winery in 1971 with the intention of producing a world-class Brunello di Montalcino, the estate in the municipality of Montalcino was still a mixed farm. Over the years, Giovanni acquired land in areas of the zone where there are excellent conditions for the cultivation of large plants. Today the 500 hectare vineyard comprises 63 hectares of vineyards and 20 hectares of olive groves. On a clear day, visitors to the winery can even see the tower of Piazza del Campo in Siena at the delivery point for the grapes.

    Since the first harvest in 1978, the company has been producing year after year fabulous wines that are among the best wines in Tuscany. The Casanova di Neri Winery has long enjoyed an excellent reputation worldwide and is highly praised by wine critics. The vineyards are located in the Sesta Bassa area on the southern slope, near Castelnuovo dell'Abate and Cerretalto, in the eastern part of Montalcino, which is particularly favoured by the microclimate.

    In the representative cellar of the estate on the road from Torrenieri to Montalcino, which is underground and functionally equipped, barrels of different sizes and types of wood are used for the ageing of the wines in two large rooms on two levels. The fermentation takes place in open conical stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature and without the use of pumps. This ensures that the quality of the grapes is taken into account as much as possible. Only the best tannins are extracted and the colour and fragrance of the plants are preserved.

    Giovanni Neri, who had already appointed his son Giacomo as plant manager in 1991, has always strived for perfection as a representative of a modern style at Brunello. The family is supported in their work by none other than Carlo Ferrini. Casanova di Neri regularly produces wines with a high recognition value and exemplary style. The "Brunello 2001 Tenuta Nuova" was found, believe it or not, on the first rank in the classification of the "Top 100" of the US trade magazine WineSpectator. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Giacomo Neri produces normal Brunello and two single vineyard wines: The excellent Cerretalto and the sensational Tenuta Nuova. He adjusts the barrel ripeness to the quality and condition of the vintage." Little Johnson
