Magnum Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Casanova di Neri
Magnum Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Casanova di Neri
Giacomo Neri has produced a very approachable wine in this warm vintage. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is plump and juicy with loads of dark fruit and mild spice at the back. It doesn't have the depth or complexity of the gorgeous 2010 vintage, but the wine does a very good job presenting the main traits you look for in Brunello. The fruit is lively and the acidity gives the wine a sense of buoyancy and brightness. The tannins are very well integrated - a good Brunello - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
