We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

asanova di Neri was established in 1971 when Giovanni Neri acquired a large estate within Montalcino. In 1991, his son Giacomo took over direction of the estate and winemaking. His 138 acres are divided into four distinct areas: Pietradonice in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, Cetine in Sant'Angelo in Colle, Cerretalto and Fiesole. . The Fiesole is the oldest vineyard due northeast of Montalcino at 862 feet. In 1986, Cerretalto was acquired - a natural amphitheatre near the Asso River at an elevation between 617 and 741 feet. The vineyard’s position to the east of Montalcino and unique terroir justify its own bottling. On the opposite side of Montalcino to the southeast, near Castelnuovo dell'Abate we find the Pietradonice vineyard, planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. The 61 acre Cetine vineyard, faces south-southeast on a hillside near Sant'Angelo in Colle. Soil, vineyard position, microclimate, choice of clones, grafting and well-organized vineyards all combine to produce exceptional grapes. As the quality of fruit from vineyards has improved, more care and attention have also been given in the winery - from vinification, to the careful selection and use of casks of different sizes, made from different types of oak - always with the maximum respect for tradition. The winery’s Brunello production is divided between three different labels in order to best represent the estate’s unique characteristics - White Label, Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto. Giacomo Neri and consultant Carlo Ferrini are constantly looking for ways to improve their vineyards and winemaking. Their wines are fine expressions of terroir with good structure and soft oak.

VinousCasanova di Neri's 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a very pretty and expressive wine. Sweet red cherry, menthol, rose petal and mint open up first, followed by a touch of blood orange that adds lovely aromatic lift and brightness throughout. Although not especially complex, the 2011 should drink beautifully for at least a handful of years. Today, it is quite pretty and expressive.

Wine AdvocateGiacomo Neri has produced a very approachable wine in this warm vintage. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is plump and juicy with loads of dark fruit and mild spice at the back. It doesn't have the depth or complexity of the gorgeous 2010 vintage, but the wine does a very good job presenting the main traits you look for in Brunello. The fruit is lively and the acidity gives the wine a sense of buoyancy and brightness. The tannins are very well integrated. It doesn't reach Brunello greatness, but it is a good Brunello.
