The 2012 Brunellos are proving to be every bit as stunning and collectible as the 2010's. Don't hesitate. If you didn't get any of the 2001 or 2010 Tenuta Nuova by Casanova di Neri, now is your chance to savor a bit of wine history. Allow me to explain:
     Like all wines we feature, I have tasted this beauty. It is every bit as outstanding and memorable as the press suggests. I have also enjoyed the iconic 2001 Casanova di Neri Tenuta Nuova, which was the #1 Wine Spectator Top 100 wine. The parallels are staggering!
     Arguably one of the finest Brunellos in any vintage, Casanova di Neri's 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a show-stopper and "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...this remains one Bellissimo Brunello." The Wine Advocate
    Enjoy it now; enjoy it over the next decade; your cellar is not complete without Casanova di Neri Tenuta Nuova. Please note, other's claim to have this wine - we actually do. While supplies last, first come first served. Enjoy!
