Ratings and Tasting Notes:

AG=93 My recent tastings gave me my first chance to experience the 2018 Rosso di Montalcino Giovanni Neri, a wine dedicated to the estate's founder which also celebrates their 50th anniversary. The fruit for the Giovanni Neri hails from the newest acquisition by Giacomo Neri: the Tocci vineyard in the south of Montalcino. This is a fifty-year-old parcel which will also be used to create a new Brunello Cru in the Casanova di Neri portfolio. Let’s just say that if the Rosso is any hint to what we can expect from the Brunello (to be released in 2023), then we are all in for a real treat. The purity, energy and pretty nature of this Rosso was spellbinding. WA=92+ There is a lot of buzz surrounding the untapped potential of the Rosso di Montalcino appellation, so when you get a new wine from a headline estate like Casanova di Neri, you can really start to bank on that potential. The hope is that many more will forge forward in this direction, giving greater definition and identity to this Brunello-adjacent entry-level wine. The Casanova di Neri 2018 Rosso di Montalcino Giovanni Neri offers a pure window onto Sangiovese from this hamlet in southern Tuscany. Indeed, the grape here is called Brunello or "Sangiovese Grosso" precisely because it tends to offer dark ("bruno") fruit flavors and rich intensity in its most natural state. This is a naked and transparent wine that allows you to accurately taste the so-called bruno in Sangiovese without too many extra bells or whistles. There are savory and wild characteristics with forest fruit, bitter almond, dried herb and balsam herb. That initial wave of aromatics is followed by tilled earth and subtle spice. The wine is named after Giacomo Neri's father, who shares the name Giovanni with his grandson. This inaugural vintage celebrates the estate's 50th anniversary.
