Casanova di Neri Cerretalto, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Italy 2018

Cerretalto is a special blend of intuition, passion and vision – the hallmark of all Casanova di Neri’s work. The grapes hail mainly from a vineyard situated in a natural amphitheatre alongside a small river. The prized white truffles which grow in our private truffle reserve here bear witness to the purity of this environment. Soil rich in minerals, a very particular microclimate and low yield per plant coupled with our experience, dedication and passion for our work in the vineyard and in the cellar make Cerretalto a wine of immense character and harmonious structure. It's a wine of exceptional quality, personality and inimitable style – the perfect expression of the territory that nurtures it, the distillation of our idea of what a great Brunello should be. Cerretalto is a wine of outstanding character. Its uniqueness lies in the aroma’s graphite notes and sanguine undertones, and the extraordinary length and persistence of flavor on the palate.

Sangiovese 100%

Giovanni Neri tasting notes:

Cerretalto 2018 shows a young and lively red. The nose expresses a mix of fresh red fruits, spices and the usual graphite. On the palate it’s rich and harmonious, showing an elegant and fine structure that fully reflects the 2018 harvest. The finish is balanced and very precise, with a present acidity that perfectly balances the persistence, the deepness and the roundness of this wine.

Vintage notes:

The winter of 2018 was very cold, with temperatures so low that bud break occurred a week later than had been the norm for previous years. Spring rainfall was plentiful. The vines bloomed in the final week of May. Summer began cool, and June and July went by without extreme heat. A large range in diurnal temperatures in the period prior to harvest allowed the grapes to mature slowly and steadily.
