Winemaker's Notes:

Having skipped the release of 2005 vintage Brunello Cerretalto is back with the 2006. It is a deep and complex wine delivering fruity and spicy notes and a distinctive mineral scent which is the unmistakable mark of this wine. The finish is remarkably long and deep.

Perfectly matching with meat and cured cheeses but also just with the persons you love to share it for moments of authentic pleasure.

About Casanova di Nieri:

Casanova di Neri was established in 1971 when Giovanni Neri acquired a large estate within Montalcino. Over the years their continuing goal has been the search for land believed to be optimal for growing high quality grapes. There are now 120 acres of vineyards divided amongst four distinct sites. Improved quality in the vineyards has led to more attention in the winery, from vinification to the careful selection of casks for aging but always with the maximum respect for tradition. Today the property is operated and wines made by Giacomo Neri, who states, "Our greatest pride is our vineyards: their high quality and their history."
