From the producer: Tenuta Nuova, meaning “New Farm,” was literally a groundbreaking project by Casanova di Neri to develop an area in the Brunello di Montalcino denomination that had not been planted with Sangiovese before. The ridge, covered with Mediterranean maquis shrubs, was originally owned by a shepherd, but proved to be too rocky for good grazing. The Neris, however, saw great promise for vineyards. They planted Le Cetine vineyard with vines cut from the winery’s exceptional Cerretalto vineyard, and implemented the highest standards of viticulture in the vineyards. Ultimately, the Neris’ faith in the area has been validated by the exceptional quality of the Tenuta Nuova Brunello.

"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. Thinking back to my tasting of the 2015, I can’t say that the 2016 is necessarily a better wine, just a little less immediate. Either way, both wines are beautiful expressions of vintage." -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
