Brunello di Montalcino, Cerretalto, Casanova di Neri, DOCG, 2015
Laagerdunud väikestes Prantsuse tammevaatides 36 kuud, ning seejärel 24 kuud pudelis. Seda veini valmistatakse ainult väga headel aastatel. Valmistatud ainult valitud viinamarjadest Asso jõe kallastelt. Vein on täidlane, võimas ja vürtsine.
Sobib punase lihaga.
James Suckling – 100 Points
This is a momentous wine with incredible power and structure that has so much minerality and crushed-stone character to the black cherries and blueberries. Full-bodied and tannic, yet the tannins are layered and polished with a glorious, creamy and juicy texture that coats your mouth. It goes on for minutes. Incredible wine. Try after 2025.

Of these new releases from this benchmark estate, the Casanova di Neri 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is my favorite wine. This Riserva is larger than life with ripe fruit, raspberry, cherry, spice, cola, root beer, mesquite and cedar. The wine offers a flashy and generous quality of fruit that unfolds over time with a multifaceted and multi-layered presentation. One thing that stands out here is the acidity that is bracing and tart at first but then succumbs to an important supporting role, rendering lasting freshness and persistence to the finish. With time, you get a flash of cherry and crème de cassis that seals the deal.
