About the Producer

Giacomo Neri has grown his winery into one of Montalcino’s most famous, known worldwide. The farm “Casanova di Neri” was founded in 1971 when Giovanni Neri bought a large estate within the Montalcino territory. The farm has grown to 55 hectares of vineyards, situated all over the area surrounding Montalcino, some to the north but mostly near the old Castelnuovo dell’Abate onyx quarry and on the eastern slope of lower central Sesta.


Grapes

100% Sangiovese Grosso (locally known as Brunello).


Vineyard

The Casanova di Neri vineyards, set on the various slopes of Montalcino, are influenced by radical differences in soil, microclimate and surrounding vegetation, while maintaining a maximum separation of just one kilometre. Tenuta Nuova is a pioneering and visionary vineyard project embodying the belief and passion of Casanova di Neri. Tenuta Nuova (which means “New Property”) is a terrain where nobody had ever planted Sangiovese before and shows the resolve to produce a powerful yet drinkable Brunello with long ageing potential. The project began with the study of various local microclimates and their optimal exposures. Through cautious and passionate research and employing the most sophisticated scientific investigations, Casanova di Neri determined the clones, rootstocks, cultivation practices, plant density per hectare and every possible detail needed in order to grow the best possible Sangiovese grapes.


Vinification

After being harvested by hand, the grapes are taken to the cellar, where they are inspected on a sorting table to remove any parts considered unsuitable for the required high quality. Subsequently a machine separates the stalks from the grapes, which drop onto another sorting table. The selected grapes are then taken by gravity to tanks, where the vinification process begins. Only natural yeasts are used. Fermentation and Maceration last for approximately 24 days.


Ageing

By law, Brunello di Montalcino has to spend an ageing period of at least 24 months in oak barrels and can be released for sale only after 5 years have elapsed since the grape harvest. Tenuta Nuova matures for 36 months in oak casks and 12 months in the bottle before being ready for release.


Tasting Notes

At first sight, Brunello Di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova immediately portents greatness through the sheer intensity of its bright red colour. The bouquet is very expressive and intense, with notes of young red fruit, blackberry and the typical balsamic suggestions. Sweet, ripe strawberry and cherry fruit melds seamlessly with the dense, refined structure of this red. Saline, liquorice and spice accents add complexity as it lingers gracefully on the finish, showing terrific harmony and expression.


Analysis
