DESCRIPTION

James Suckling 95

“Very fresh and floral on the nose with rose petals, cherries and hot stones. Medium to full body, linear and fine tannins and a fresh finish. So linear and focused. Wow. Drink in two or three years.” (January, 2018)

 

Vinous Media (Ian D'Agata) 91+

“Dark bright red-ruby. Deep, complex aromas of red cherry, licorice, graphite and fresh herbs, lifted by a note of white pepper with riper hints coffee and blackberry jam. The flavors are similar to the aromas and have a strong mineral tang that dissipates with aeration. Offers excellent energy and verve and youthfully chewy tannins that will require patience. This is a rare Tenuta Nuova that actually reminds me of Cerretalto, with its darker than usual frut aromas and flavors and hints of graphite. Be aware, that like Casanova di neri’s 2012 classico Brunello, this also benefits greatly from four to five hours in the glass.” (March, 2017)

 

Wine Advocate (Monica Larner) 96

“The Casanova di Neri 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a beautiful wine that recalls many of the stunning characteristics found in its high-scoring predecessor. I gave a perfect 100 points to the 2010 edition of this same wine. This expression, made two years later, continues in that tradition of excellence. The quality of fruit is profound and intense. The bouquet offers black cherry, spice, leather, balsam herb, cola and licorice. The complexity is absolutely impressive. The mouthfeel, however, is slightly thinner. The classic 2010 vintage is remembered for its twofold punch of elegance and power. Alternatively, the 2012 vintage shows aromatic intensity and less persistence on the finish, generally speaking. Having said that, this remains one Bellissimo Brunello. Drink 2019-2035.” (February, 2017)

 

Wine Spectator (Bruce Sanderson) 94

“Precise balance sets the stage for cherry, black currant, violet and tobacco flavors in this smooth, intense red. The tannins are present yet well-integrated and this persists with echoes of fruit and tobacco. Reveals an element of spice on the aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2035.” (June, 2017)
