Critical Acclaim

"Dark ruby. Wonderful aromas of crushed berry, fresh flowers and red licorice. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Lots of mushroom, berry and chocolate flavors."
95 Points

"In my blind tasting notes for the 1997 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova, I wrote: “I bet this is one of the flagship wines that cemented the vintage’s greatness.” And so it was. This wine did help to bring 1997 Brunello to world attention. Executed in impeccable fashion, Tenuta Nuova shows extreme balance and care that is evident from the outset. The bouquet is comprised of a mixture of both secondary (fruity) and tertiary (or aged) aromas and the finish is pristine and polished. The tannins have retreated and soften over the course of the past decade."

For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
