Brunello di Montalcino Casanova di Neri 2014 (750ML)
94+ Points, Zachys Buying Team: "The 2014 Casanova di Neri Brunello Normal offers great structure, with bright cherry fruit and surprising freshness for the vintage. The normale was made with the prized fruit Casanova's top vineyards sites, Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto. When you taste the 2014 you could sense the tannins of Tenuta Nuova with the ripeness of Cerretalto, there is great purity to the fruit. It is a wine that delivers finesse and elegance with an approachable and ready to drink style, that will offer immense pleasure to both Sangiovese enthusiasts, as well as, the ardent Pinot Noir fan! Kudos to Giacomo and Giovanni Neri for producing a great example in Sangiovese in less than perfect conditions."
92 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is the white label Brunello from Giacomo Neri and his son Giovanni. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is faithful to the vintage with a compact and streamlined style that suggests a near or medium-term drinking window. In general, I am hesitant to recommend this vintage for any significant cellar aging, and one reason is because these wines perform nicely straight out of the gate. The same goes for this relatively easy expression that is redolent of wild berry, rose hip, blue flower and moist potting soil. Because the Brunelli Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto were not made in this vintage, this wine represents a blend of fruit from across the estate. This is the first time this has happened at Casanova di Neri." 1/19.
93 Points, Ian d'Agata, Vinous: "Bright deep red. Perfumed nose of red cherry, Oriental spices, flint and graphite. Rich, dense and suave on entry, then lighter and more linear in the middle, but with a plush juicy mouthfeel that makes it hard to put the glass back down once you've started tasting it. Very pure black/red cherry and spice flavors linger impressively on the long, refreshing finish. A knockout 2014 Brunello that lacks the size of the bigger vintages (very appropriately, I may add, given what the 2014 growing season was like) but showcases enchanting purity and grace. Vey well done." 3/19
93 Points, James Suckling: "Wild red fruit and orange zest with cedar and wild herbs. The cherries here are fresh and lively and the tannins cut a sturdy, even frame around impressively long, fresh flavors. The only Brunello made here in 2014; there are no single vineyard bottlings. Drink or hold." 2/19.
International Wine Reviews
94 Points, J. d'Angleo, International Wine Review: "The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino from Casanova di Neri is absolutely fabulous. In 2014 Giacomo and Giovanni Neri decided to include all the fruit from Cerretalto and Tenuta Nuova in their normal Brunello, and it has definitely paid off, as this is one of the most successful wine from the vintage. This instantly begins to impress as it opens to pretty aromatics of dried red and dark berries, exotic spices, dried violets and smokey nuances all taking shape. On the palate this is absolutely gorgeous, silky and refined, displaying beautiful overall balance and finesse, which is backed by lovely underlying acidity that frames the satiny finish. The 2014 is already showing remarkably well, and readers will not need to wait long to fully enjoy this outstanding Brunello. While it is certainly somewhat disappointing not to see one of my personal favorite wines, Tenuta Nuova, in 2014, I absolutely love the decision and sacrifice that was made in order to achieve the best possible results given the difficult conditions of the vintage." 4/19
