'Tenuta Nuova' Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Casanova di Neri
Tenuta Nuova 2012 has balsamic and red fruit notes, while in the mouth shows itself with ripen and silky tannins which are supported by a vibrant finish. It is now enjoyable but capable of ageing for many years. This wine is persistent, velvety, and goes on for minutes once opened.

Note: Born of vineyards with unique characteristics that produce Sangiovese grapes and give a wine of great distinction and unique structure, potency and fineness. Captivating and complex in its fragrances, profound in its width yet able to express in delightful flavours, in the style of our estate. It lends itself to a lengthy evolution through the years but also drunk young it will give great satisfaction. Ever since its first harvest in 1993 it has had constant amazing recognition from the world press.
