My last ‘12. Established in 1971 when Giovanni Neri acquired a large estate in Montalcino. My Wow Wines! Aged for almost 4 years on oak, 100% Sangiovese. Ruby with aromas of ripe dark fruits, oak and spice. Full-bodied wine with medium+ acidity, fine developed smooth tannins with elegance & finesse. Ripe fruit flavors of cherry & strawberry, complex with notes of cacao, tobacco, toasty & earthiness on the long finish. Very nice, sorry it’s my last bottle.

Casanova di Neri’s 2012 Brunello di Montalcino White Label was Wine Spectator’s #4 on their Top 100 wines of 2017. It’s been open for 30 minutes and I can’t believe they didn’t make this Wine of the Year. Intoxicatingly perfumed, it exudes confidence, and yet it’s all romance. Rose petal, citrus, fig, tar, brick, leather, sage, and spiced potpourri form a stunning mosaic.

Oooo lala. Lovely, and 2012 was a hot year. Sour cherry and dried plums/dark fruits. Some great leather and tobacco that gives it a depth and linger that help it finish strong.

Dense but linear. Needs at least another year in bottle to soften.

Spectacular. Paired with central Texas style bbq beef rib, etc from Brett’s BBQ shop. Italian wine is the answer for BBQ. @HouBBQ

Bright, acidic cherries cut against well integrated oak and tannin profile. Somehow felt weightless.
