Casanuova delle Cerbaie

The villa and winery at Casanuova delle Cerbaie goes back decades, but they were purchased by an American investor in 2008. He happens to be a lover and devotee of traditional Brunello and set about investing in upgrades while simultaneously insisting that everything be done the slow, old-fashioned way.

Farming is meticulous and sustainable and harvesting is always completely by hand. The wines are aged for long periods of time in only large Botti of Slavonian Oak and released after several more years of aging in the bottle. The heart of the Estate's holdings is the famed vineyard of Montesoli.

Professional Reviews

Wine Enthusiast

WE 94
"Baked plum, star anise, aromatic herb, new leather and pressed violet scents create an enticing bouquet. The powerfully structured savory palate offers dried black cherry, black raspberry, licorice and tobacco framed in firm fine-grained tannins. You'll also note the warmth of alcohol on the close, but the fruit richness keeps it in check. Drink after 2022." -Kerin O’Keefe
