Brunello di Montalcino, Casanova di Neri, 2014, 75cl

91.20 /L

2014. aasta oli Casanova di Neri jaoks unikaalne aasta. See aastakäik on üks elegantsemaid ja kompleksemaid veine, mis Casanova di Neri on loonud.

Särava punase värvusega vein, mille aroomis on tunda vihjeid punastest marjadest. Maitse on perfektses tasakaalus, alates elavast happest kuni kreemise ja siidise konsistensini. Tanniinid on äärmiselt peened ja järelmaitse on äärmiselt pikk ja nauditav. Vein küpses tammest vaatides 43 kuud ja hiljem veel pudelis 6 kuud.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 92 Points

This is the white label Brunello from Giacomo Neri and his son Giovanni. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is faithful to the vintage with a compact and streamlined style that suggests a near or medium-term drinking window. In general, I am hesitant to recommend this vintage for any significant cellar aging, and one reason is because these wines perform nicely straight out of the gate. The same goes for this relatively easy expression that is redolent of wild berry, rose hip, blue flower and moist potting soil. Because the Brunelli Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto were not made in this vintage, this wine represents a blend of fruit from across the estate. This is the first time this has happened at Casanova di Neri.

Decanter – 92 Points

For the first time in Casanova di Neri’s history, the white-label Brunello incorporates grapes usually destined for their Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto bottlings. The grapes were given a brief maceration so as not to extract any bitter tannins, yielding an immediately approachable midweight red. Dusty cherry, cranberry and redcurrant notes grace the nose and palate, with red rose and white pepper lending complexity. The tannins are fine and provide a subtle grip, while taut, tart acidity demands a rich, meaty pasta sauce. This will sit well at the dinner table. Drinking Window 2019 – 2027
