Brunello Giovanni Neri expresses our tradition and winemaking philosophy, and embraces the values of sustainability, and the territory’s uniqueness. After fifty years from the purchase of the first vineyard, Giacomo, Giovanni and Gianlorenzo named this wine as Casanova di Neri’s founder. A remarkable wine, a pure Sangiovese’s expression born out of an ancient, untamed vineyard with half-century old vines spread over a great winegrowing terroir. While bringing together tradition and innovation is anything but an easy task, the Giovanni Neri manages that with an unmistakable elegance.
First harvest of this Casanova di Neri vineyard. This vineyard, purchased in 2017, is located in the south-east area, one of the most important and renowned of Montalcino, its has magnificent exposure and very old vines, almost 50 years old. Intense and bright red. On the nose it is a symphony of young red fruits: cranberries, cherries and plums. Blood orange appears in the glass after. In the mouth the tannins are very fine, creamy and expansive. The acidity of the 2018 harvest is perfectly balanced with the generosity and structure of this wine. The finish is deep and persistent, a sign of a great future.
"The 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino Giovanni Neri is a relatively new addition to the range from the southeast in Sesta. It pours a rich ruby hue, with aromas of perfumed red raspberry, herbes de Provence, wild strawberry, and a light note of cinnamon. It offers elegance and purity, with a refined texture, vibrant red berries, and beautiful notes of fresh blood orange, tea leaf, a fine tannic structure. and. This is a vintage with a lot of finesse as well as a more transparent nature that is refreshing."
