Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova DOCG 2012
96 points Robert Parker: "The Casanova di Neri 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a beautiful wine that recalls many of the stunning characteristics found in its high-scoring predecessor. I gave a perfect 100 points to the 2010 edition of this same wine. This expression, made two years later, continues in that tradition of excellence. The quality of fruit is profound and intense. The bouquet offers black cherry, spice, leather, balsam herb, cola and licorice. The complexity is absolutely impressive. The mouthfeel, however, is slightly thinner. The classic 2010 vintage is remembered for its twofold punch of elegance and power. Alternatively, the 2012 vintage shows aromatic intensity and less persistence on the finish, generally speaking. Having said that, this remains one Bellissimo Brunello." (2/2017)
96 points James Suckling: "Lots of spice, balsamic and ripe-fruit character to this one. Walnut undertones. Full to medium body, a compressed structure of ripe tannins and packed-in fruit. Vibrant finish. Best in 2019. " (12/2016)
94 points Wine Spectator: "Precise balance sets the stage for cherry, black currant, violet and tobacco flavors in this smooth, intense red. The tannins are present yet well-integrated, and this persists with echoes of fruit and tobacco. Reveals an element of spice on the aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2035. 5,355 cases made."

NOTES FROM THE WINERY:
The Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is produced from our vineyards located on the southern side of Montalcino and it represents our will to produce a Brunello of great character. This challenge began from the choice of the most favorable soils and exposures to the sun...Shrewd and passionate work has been combined with scientific skills in setting clones, rootstocks, trellies, yield and any other element which could guarantee excellent Sangiovese grapes. The Tenuta Nuova is aged in oak barrels for 27-36 months, it depends on the year, and at least for one year in the bottle.
