Casanova di Neri Pietradonice 2006
This full, plump and generous Cabernet Sauvignon offers loads of ripe fruit, smoothness and intensity. If you love rich, sun-filled red wines from Tuscany, this is a perfect choice. In the mouth, you get firm tannins and bright cherry flavors on the close. Excellent.
The 2006 Pietradonice (Cabernet Sauvignon) explodes from the glass with the essence of blackberry jam, French oak, grilled herbs and cassis. This super-ripe, opulent wine offers tons of elegance and finesse in a full-bodied style. The tannins are firm but ripe, and beautifully balanced by the wine's radiant, warm fruit. This is a gem from proprietor Giacomo Neri. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026.
This is very ripe, verging on raisin. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a lot of dried fruits on the palate, like fruitcake. Slightly overdone, but still likeable for its character and richness. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2011.
