    Brunello di Montalcino "Tenuta Nuova" DOCG 2015 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    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
