Wine Description

(2001 Vintage) The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is Neri’s modern-styled Brunello. It is made from vines planted in the southern part of the zone and aged in small oak barrels. It displays a darker, almost saturated color and notable concentration with masses of sweet dark fruit, smoke and licorice flavors that flow onto the palate with exceptional length and balance in a powerful, brooding style.

(2001 Vintage) This Brunello di Montalcino is aged in Slavonian oak barrels for about 30 months and in the bottle for a year. It was born in their historic vineyards. Its constant high quality is further enhanced by its elegance and finesse. The vineyards lie to the south of Montalcino, a zone of Brunello marked by warmer micro-climates and intense, powerful wines.
