tenuta nuova brunello di montalcino casanova di neri verticale 20 anni

It is now time to get into the vertical tasting of the 20 years of Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova Casanova di Neri, a wine of historical importance for the appellation. In this installment we will start from 1993 (the first harvest) and go up to 2004, to finish up with the rest tomorrow.

Before we get into the vintages in question, it is important to remember that the wine was not produced in either 2002 or 2014 because of poor harvests. Also missing here is 1994 because the last bottle left of that vintage, a magnum, was corked, even if it did look very good. We also decided to skip 1999 because each bottle was too different from the other to make an overall evaluation.

As production regulations demand the wines are all made from only Sangiovese grapes, in this case from 15-hetare Tenuta Nuova vineyard situated in the southern part of Montalcino. As we stated yesterday, the wine matures in new French-oak barriques and barrels, the duration depending on the harvest, after which in ages long in the bottle.

The prices are approximate, above all in regard to the older vintages, because they are not easy to find, even if you can come across some in wine shops where they have not jacked up the price.
