About Casanova di Neri

Casanova di Neri was established in 1971 when Giovanni Neri acquired a large estate within Montalcino. In 1991, his son Giacomo took over direction of the estate and winemaking. His 138 acres are divided into four distinct areas: Pietradonice in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, Cetine in Sant'Angelo in Colle, Cerretalto and Fiesole. The Fiesole is the oldest vineyard due northeast of Montalcino at 862 feet. In 1986, Cerretalto was acquired – a natural amphitheatre near the Asso River at an elevation between 617 and 741 feet. The vineyard’s position to the east of Montalcino and unique terroir justify its own bottling. On the opposite side of Montalcino to the southeast, near Castelnuovo dell'Abate we find the Pietradonice vineyard, planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. The 61 acre Cetine vineyard, faces south-southeast on a hillside near Sant'Angelo in Colle. Soil, vineyard position, microclimate, choice of clones, grafting and well-organized vineyards all combine to produce exceptional grapes.

As the quality of fruit from vineyards has improved, more care and attention have also been given in the winery – from vinification, to the careful selection and use of casks of different sizes, made from different types of oak – always with the maximum respect for tradition. The winery’s Brunello production is divided between three different labels in order to best represent the estate’s unique characteristics – White Label, Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto.

Giacomo Neri and consultant Carlo Ferrini pay equal attention to all their wines, treating them all with the same respect and attention during the wine making process, from the entry level Rosso di Casanova, all the way to the top bottling single vineyard Brunello's. This is just one reason Casanova di Neri has earned the respect and pedigree they have today.

In our latest tasing report, we tasted the 2010 Rosso di Casanova, 2010 Rosso di Montalcino, 2008 Brunello (White Label), 2008 Brunello Tenuta Nuova and the 2007 Brunello Cerretalto.
