A blend of Sangiovese and Colorino which are ajacent to Brunello vineyards. This remains a baby Brunello from younger vines on Neri's property. The nose shows an aroma set with tar, deep black cherry, a hint of graphite and pencil lead and a bit of dried cherry and earth. The palate is present with full black cherry, tar, spice, and a bit of loamy earth. D&M Tasting Notes
This wine is born from the grapes of the "Cetine" vineyards to the south of Montalcino where our Brunello Tenuta Nuova and our Rosso di Montalcino come from. It is obtained from Sangiovese Grosso and Colorino grapes (the plants are reproductions of old varieties that we found in our oldest vineyards). We tried to produce a wine typical of our land and closely linked to it but with the style and characteristics of Casanova di Neri wines. It can be drunk at once or kept for some years giving even greater satisfaction.
Intense ruby red, hints of wild cherry, violets and red fruits ample and easy to drink with excellent persistence. Serve at a temperature of 16° - 17° opening the bottle a few hours previously or decant delicately.. Try this with Tuscan cold cuts, pasta with tomato sauce, or roast white meats. Winery Notes
