This fleshy red is introduced by graphite, mint and wild herb aromas, with plum and cherry flavors as the main themes and earth, tobacco and underbrush notes in supporting roles. Balanced, ending in a savory aftertaste. Best from 2025 through 2043. Drinking range: 2025 - 2043 Rating: 93 Bruce Sanderson, The Wine Spectator (Mar 2022)

Lustrous mid ruby. Brooding, sweet fruit nose with a suggestion of oak but otherwise still a little closed. Concentrated deep sweet-sour cherry palate with fine but firm tannins. Very long and elegant rather than powerful. Drinking range: 2022 - 2030 Rating: 17 Walter Speller, (Feb 2022)

The Casanova di Neri 2017 Brunello di Montalcino delivers unexpected grace and a floral profile that is not common to find in this scorching-hot and dry vintage. In faithful Casanova di Neri fashion, the wine is bold and dark in appearance, and although the bouquet is dominated by purple and black fruits, there is a brief interlude of fresh garden rose or lilac. That little moment changes up the momentum of this wine in a most positive way by allowing for a harmony of low tones and high tones that are well matched here. The wine is robust, structured and velvety to the palate, but ultimately this expression is far more delicate than I would have ever expected for a 2017 Brunello. This is a nice surprise.

Dusty florals, musky cherry and raspberry with hints of mentholated herbs waft up from the 2017 Brunello di Montalcino. This is enveloping and soft, with sweet exotic spices and juicy, vibrant acidity giving way to tart wild berries and rosy inner florals. There’s amazing length, hard red candies and violets, and sweet tannin that goes on and on, creating a somewhat chewy yet also fresh expression. The 2017 benefits from all of the fruit that would usually go into the single-vineyard Cerretalto Brunello, though even with it, production is down by 35%. That said, this is stunning juice.

Casanova di Neri

Casanova di Neri was founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri, a grain merchant from the town of Montevarchi, south of Florence. In 2021 they celebrated their 50th anniversary. He had a long-standing dream to make a great Italian red, and though the region of Chianti Classico was on his doorstep, it was the remote and relatively unknown Brunello di Montalcino that piqued his interest. Achieving DOC status just four years previously, and with only around 30 producers in the area compared to around 250 today, it offered the perfect opportunity for a man with a clear vision. After the great Giovanni died in 1991, his son Giacomo took the reins, and is now accompanied by his sons, Giovanni and Gianlorenzo.
