2017 Brunello di Montalcino ‘White Label’, Casanova di Neri, Tuscany

£58.75 inc. VAT

One of the best Brunellos from the 20017 vintage that includes fruit from Casanova di Neri’s single vineyard, Cerretalto – a wine that usually retails at £300+ per bottle.

The winery was started by Giovanni Neri in 1971 when Montalcino had just a handful of wineries and the region was far from being the renowned place for fine wines that is now. He produced the estate’s first Brunello di Montalcino in 1978 and in the 1981 purchased the now legendary Cerretalto vineyard that is situated in a natural amphitheatre (which creates its own microclimate) and has soil rich in iron and magnesium.

A serious powerhouse but with underlying elegance. Pronounced aromas of luscious black cherry, plum and blackcurrant with undertones of leather, balsamic and spice. Silky and smooth on the palate with soft grainy tannins, ripe but elegant fruit and a wonderful silky finish that lingers for a long time. Despite the warm vintage, Casanova di Neri have produced a wine that manages to display the ripeness of the fruit but maintaining the elegance that are renowned for. The top quality grapes from their Cerretalto vineyard that are included in this blend have propelled it to another level.

Highly recommended
