Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of violets, dark red fruits and earth precede similar flavors on the palate. An elegantly styled supple red that offers complex aromas of dried berries and raspberries with notes of chocolate. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and long finish.

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."
