A year of great balance. At sight it appears lively and brilliant red. Red fruits such as cherries and black cherries stand out on the nose. In the mouth it is rich and elegant, with a dense tannic texture and a persistent and pleasant finish. It can be enjoyed straight away but will be at its peak in a few years.

Producer Information

Founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri, in 2021 Casanova di Neri celebrated its 50th anniversary. A long-standing lover of wine, Giovanni had a dream to make a great Italian red and chose the northeast of Montalcino to do so. The property currently consists of 500 hectares, of which 156 hectares are dedicated to Sangiovese vines, and the rest left as woodland, olive groves and arable land.

Giovanni’s son, Giacomo Neri, now holds the reins, and is accompanied by the third generation, his sons Giovanni and Gianlorenzo. The family are renowned for having set the benchmark for Montalcino’s single-vineyard wines. The wines are luxurious, rich and lusciously textural, with a consistent excellence across their vintages and distinctive terroirs.

Casanova di Neri believe that the reputation of Sangiovese has too long been stained by inadequate handling of its tannins. To combat this and produce wines with attractive, ripe tannins, they de-stem all the fruit by hand, then further refine the harvest with an optical sorter. A mostly underground winery incorporates low impact and gravity flow, allowing the wines to be treated as gently as possible. The result: wines notable in their purity and harmony, from their tannins to their colour and aroma.
