2006 Casanova Di Neri Brunello Di Montalcino Cerretalto
A potentially perfect red. It shows dark fruits with prunes, blackberries, and blueberries on the nose. Insane intensity. Full and dense with thick, yet super-polished and velvety tannins. Incredible length and depth. Amazing. Such great acidity and freshness too. The finish shows notes of iron, rust and dark fruits. Goes on for minutes. Out in the market early next year.

Aromas of ripe strawberries, sandalwood, and flowers follow though to a full body, with soft tannins and a fruity finish. This is so long and gorgeous, with intense fruit and a defined and beautiful structure. Amazing fruit at the finish. Gorgeous now, but will age beautifully. The palate builds and show such depth. So wonderful now, but better in 2015. 99 points

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto emerges from the glass with layers of beautifully delineated dark fruit, flowers, mint, licorice and violets. It possesses terrific richness and nuance in a full-bodied, structured style that captures the essence of this great vintage. Big, powerful tannins provide the backdrop for expressive, super-ripe aromas and flavors. The 2006 needs time to soften, but it is immensely promising. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

--The Wine Advocate
The Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is produced from a selection of vineyards situated in the natural amphitheatre by the Asso river. The particular microclimate, the "terroir", the low production per vine and the great attention to detail in the winery together produce a well balanced wine with character and good alcohol content. It is only produced when we consider the quality of the grapes harvested to be excellent. It is aged for about 2 years in French oak casks and then for at least 18 months in the bottle.
