    50 years ago Giovanni Neri purchased his first vineyard and started the legacy of Casanova di Neri. With this new wine, Giovanni Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2018, the family pays homage to the founder of the winery and their father and grandfather. Made from a single vineyard, Tocci, 7 hectares, purchased in 2017. The vineyard is located in the Sesta sub-zone, with remarkable terroir, the 50 year old Sangiovese vines produce a pure and authentic wine with unmistakable elegance. 20% whole cluster fermentation in stainless steel with ambiant yeast. Aged 30 months in 500L French oak casks; matured in the bottle for 22 months. Limited first release.

    "Lovely ripe fruit on the nose, with cranberries, plums, morello cherries, white truffles, red tea and white pepper. The tannins are very fine, creamy and expansive. Coating and generous, yet fresh. Wonderful length and depth. From a 7-hectare parcel of 50-year old vines. Try this from 2025." - James Suckling, 98 points

    "The 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino Giovanni Neri is a relatively new addition to the range from the southeast in Sesta. It pours a rich ruby hue, with aromas of perfumed red raspberry, herbes de Provence, wild strawberry, and a light note of cinnamon. It offers elegance and purity, with a refined texture, vibrant red berries, and beautiful notes of fresh blood orange, tea leaf, a fine tannic structure. and. This is a vintage with a lot of finesse as well as a more transparent nature that is refreshing. Best after 2024." - Jeb Dunnuck, 98 points

    "The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino Giovanni Neri is shapely and enriched in an extremely pleasing manner. The Neri family has perfected its approach to concentration and fruit weight over the many years they have been making excellent wines. This wine gives the appearance of being full-bodied, but ultimately, it reveals a very elegant side. Ripe cherry and blackberry cede to oak spice, toast and crushed white stone. The tannins are softly pliable and sweet. Compared to the estate's other wines, Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto, Giovanni Neri is finer and more delicate, even fragile in personality. Some 5,400 bottles were made in this inaugural release." - RP, 96 points
