Wine.comWine Spectator's Top 100 - #1 Wine of 2006! 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.
Antonio GalloniRating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Piedmont Report Saturated ruby. The Tenuta Nuova is Neri's more modern-styled Brunello. It is made from vines planted in the southern part of the zone and aged in small oak barrels. It displays darker 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.
International Wine CellarRating: 91/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 127, July/August 2006 Saturated medium ruby; very dark for sangiovese. Primary aromas of blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, tar and melted licorice. Juicy, minerally and penetrating, in a rather brooding modern style. Concentrated, primary flavors of crushed berries, licorice, leather and cola show a lovely sweetness. Finishes with broad, mouthcoating tannins that show a slight youthful dryness today.
