(2008 Vintage) A polished modern Brunello that offers layers of dark perfumed fruit intermingled with French oak, spices, minerals, violets and licorice. The textured finish is long, sweet and pure.
Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova 2008 Wine Spectator Score: 94 points WS Tasting Note: The sawdust and graphite aromas turn to cherry and raspberry flavors in this vibrant, complex red. A beam of sweet fruit imparts energy and resonance, carrying this to a long, expansive aftertaste. The finish shows potential. Best from 2016 through 2035. 8,200 cases made.
excellent but light color
