|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Casanova di Neri|
James SucklingThis is very floral with blackberries on the nose. It's full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a ripe fruit, caramel and berry aftertaste. Delicious for the vintage. One of the wines of the vintage. Better in 2015.
Wine SpectatorThe sawdust and graphite aromas turn to cherry and raspberry flavors in this vibrant, complex red. A beam of sweet fruit imparts energy and resonance, carrying this to a long, expansive aftertaste. The finish shows potential. Best from 2016 through 2035. 8,200 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastBrunello Tenuta Nuova opens with inky dark consistency and immediate aromas of old spice, leather, toasted oak and dried fruit that pop right out of the glass. Dark licorice and espresso add to the overall complexity. There's a touch of sweet spice on the close with ripe, chewy tannins.
