This Casanova has been bringing the Brunello love since 1978 with a foundational wine that rocks Cerratalto’s and Tenuta Nuova’s excellence at a great price. A classic expression of Sangiovese from a killer vintage, you’ll find all the dark plum, clove and blue flower aromas you love. Decant to really bring them to life, or simply tuck this away in the cellar for a couple of years to bring out the blockbuster flavors on the mid-palate.

The Casanova di Neri 2016 Brunello di Montalcino (or the so-called "white label" Brunello) takes a minute or two to open, and like all these new releases from the Neri family, you're best off opening your bottle five hours before serving them. This classic expression displays raspberry, tar, hazelnut, dried fig, asphalt and some crushed chalk. The wine is streamlined and compact in terms of mouthfeel, giving us an accessible Brunello from a benchmark Montalcino estate.
