Casanova di Neri Rosso di Montalcino has a strong identity and is ready for immediate enjoyment. Lively and bright red colour in the glass. Red and black cherries, raspberries and a hint of violets fill the nose. The medium-bodied palate is rich and elegant, with a thick tannic texture and a persistent taste. 

Ageing potential: Enjoy now or keep for 10–15 years from vintage.

100% Sangiovese from dedicated Casanova di Neri vineyards in Montalcino, Italy. the fruit for this wine receives the same attention and care intended for the production of Brunello.

Manual bunch selection before destemming and a second selection via an optical selector. Spontaneous fermentation without additional yeasts, then maceration facilitated by frequent pressing in conical steel vats at a controlled temperature for 18 days. Ages for 12 months in wood.
