Casanova di Neri, Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova, 2006 was rated a perfect 100 points by James Suckling and is one of the very best Brunellos money can buy.

Casanova di Neri is one of the hottest properties in Montalcino, a lofty status based on extensive vineyards from the very best sites and the winemaking skills of consultant Carlo Ferrini. Neri's wines are typically powerful and well-textured.

"So much ripe fruit here with currants and sultanas, yet fresh and very clean. Dark berries too. Incredible ripe Sangiovese character. Full body, with masses of fruit and chewy tan nins. Plus, there’s black licorice and dried berries. Give it time to soften. What a bottle. Will it ultimately be better than 2001 Tenuta Nuova? Yes.” James Suckling
