Marks and reviews
A lively Tuscan wine with a lovely complexity
In the shadow of the majestic Tuscan hills lies Casanova di Neri, a renowned winery where tradition blends harmoniously with innovation. The estate was founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri and is now run by his son Giacomo, who has inherited the same love of wine and terroir as his father. Here, every bottle is a reflection of the year it was produced, and bears witness to a relentless quest for quality and authenticity.
A benchmark among Tuscan wines, Tenuta Nuova from Casanova di Neri comes from a terroir at an ideal altitude for Sangiovese. The Tenuta Nuova vineyard was conceived from the outset as an innovative wine-growing experiment. It is distinguished by its composition of different plots, each offering unique microclimatic conditions. The orientation of the plots, the soil and the careful choice of Sangiovese clones are all variables carefully studied to optimise the quality of the grapes.
Winemaking and ageing
The grapes were harvested by hand during the 2nd and 3rd weeks of September. The bunches were sorted by hand before being destemmed and subjected to optical sorting. Spontaneous fermentation with no added yeast followed, with maceration aided by regular pressing for 24 days in temperature-controlled conical vats. This Brunello di Montalcino wine was then aged for 30 months in oak barrels, before a further 18 months in bottle before being sold.
