Winemaker's Notes:

From vineyards that look to Montalcino from the east, at an altitude between 1,148 and 1,574 feet above sea level. Maceration and fermentation for 25 days, aged 45 months in big, old oak casks and 4 months in bottle.

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."
