The name Pietradonice comes from the land where the wine is planted, which is very rich in onyx. It is a wine which uses exclusively Cabernet and Sauvignon grapes: almost a challenge, to achieve a product which fully returns the flavour of the earth and its stone. If we add very low yields per plant and the climatic factor, we can see it - and we say this with a touch of conceit - as the wine which most tangibly represents Casanova di Neri. Pietradonice succeeds in reconciling international flavour with local tradition and, in the end, all the personality of Montalcino floods out.

Wine EnthusiastThis 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.

Wine SpectatorThis 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.
