Casanova di Neri Brunello Di Montalcino White Label 2014
*This item may have limited availability - please call ahead to have us check stock!*
Thanks to the cool climate the 2013 White Label grapes ripened slowly and steadily, showing an intense ruby red color since harvest time. The bouquet is complex, with intense red fruit notes and hints of cherry and citrus. On the palate is fresh and elegant, while tannins are velvety, ripen and well integrated. Final is long, balanced, with a refreshing aftertaste. Very pleasant and drinkable despite the long ageing potential.

Wine AdvocateThis is the white label Brunello from Giacomo Neri and his son Giovanni. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is faithful to the vintage with a compact and streamlined style that suggests a near or medium-term drinking window. In general, I am hesitant to recommend this vintage for any significant cellar aging, and one reason is because these wines perform nicely straight out of the gate. The same goes for this relatively easy expression that is redolent of wild berry, rose hip, blue flower and moist potting soil. Because the Brunelli Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto were not made in this vintage, this wine represents a blend of fruit from across the estate. This is the first time this has happened at Casanova di Neri. Bottle production is 75,669 strong.
Wine SpectatorAlluring aromas and flavors of pure cherry, raspberry and wild rose mark this round red. The firm structure is well-integrated and the finish echoes the fruit, while adding a mineral element. Offers a tactile, chalky finish. Drink now through 2032. 6,305 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.
