Giovanni Neri has always been fascinated by the intensity and aroma of the Sangiovese that he masters in Montalcino. Precisely on one of his trips to these lands, his attention was captured by a property of about 200 hectares: Podere Casanova, where wine is a marginal part of the entire agricultural production. But his skills allow him to immediately understand that the composition of the soil and the altitude with the relative climatic context can give the best Brunello in Italy. It was May 1971 and Podere Casanova, located in the better known Podere Fiesole, became Casanova de Neri.
Sangiovese grosso (locally called brunello) 100%
Aging for 36 months in oak barrels, then 6 months in the bottle and finishing with 12 months in the bottle.
Intense ruby color with garnet reflections. Its bouquet is characterized by delicate floral nuances of violet, aromas of cherry and wild berries, hints of aromatic herbs and a light balsamic touch. On the palate, the wine is long and intense, with a dense tannic texture and a pleasant gustatory evolution that leads to a refreshing finish.
Perfect on savory or stewed red meat dishes, game and aged cheeses.
