Winemaker Notes

The 2001 vintage of this wine was ranked #1 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2006

From a mass clone of Sangiovese Cerretalto. The densely planted, earlier ripening vineyards lie to the south of Montalcino. Maceration and fermentation for 23 days, aged 30 months in small oak barrels and 18 months in bottle. The first year of production was 1993.

Critical Acclaim

JS 100
James Suckling

So much ripe fruit here with currants and sultanas, yet fresh and very clean. Dark berries too. Incredible ripe Sangiovese character. Full body, with masses of fruit and chewy tan nins. Plus, there’s black licorice and dried berries. Give it time to soften. What a bottle. Will it ultimately be better than 2001 Tenuta Nuova? Yes. Best after 2013.

Wine Enthusiast

A "wow!" wine on every level, Brunello Tenuta Nuova will blow you away. This is a lovely, dark, smooth and rich expression that is packed tight with intensity and personality. The biggest, boldest wine-by far-from Montalcino's 2006 vintage, this bottle will age nicely and add value to your cellar collection.
Cellar Selection

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is an explosive, heady wine endowed with considerable richness in its dark wild cherries, licorice, tobacco, herbs and cedar. This generous, exuberant Brunello shows awesome depth and richness in a style that captures the essence of the warmth of the southern reaches of Montalcino. The Tenuta Nuova dazzles with its stunning depth, textural polish and captivating, sensual personality. A round, inviting finish has the last say in this majestic Brunello. The 2006 is easily the best vintage I have tasted of the Tenuta Nuova. The harvest took place between September 29 and October 7. Maceration and fermentation lasted 25 days, after which the wine was racked into 600-liter barrels for 36 months. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026.

WS 95
Wine Spectator

A modern version, with toast and spice notes from oak, yet also freshness and a vibrant persona. At its core is cherry, plum and licorice, with a sweet ripeness that matches the refined tannins. Best from 2014 through 2027.

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Medium red-ruby. Initially less expressive than the classico, hinting at licorice and smoky oak, but enticing blackberry and violet scents emerged with air. Concentrated, powerful and very firmly built, with a brooding medicinal reserve to the dark fruit flavors. Wonderfully sweet wine with an insidiously suave texture. Finishes very long, with tannins coating the front teeth without coming across as dry or harsh. This distinctly muscular Brunello should evolve slowly.

Casanova di Neri
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."

One of the most important wine regions of the world both qualitatively and quantitatively, Bordeaux is a powerhouse producer of wines of all colors, sweetness levels, and price points. Separated from the Atlantic ocean by a coastal pine forest, the mostly flat region has a mild maritime climate marked by cool wet winters and a warm, damp growing season, though annual differences vary enough to make vintage variation quite significant. Unpredictable weather at harvest time may negatively impact the ability of cornerstone variety Cabernet Sauvignon to ripen fully, while humid conditions can encourage the spread of rot and disease (although in the case of the region’s sweet white wines, “noble” rot known as botrytis is highly desirable). The Gironde estuary is a defining feature of Bordeaux, splitting the region into the Left Bank and the Right Bank. The vast Entre-Deux-Mers appellation lies in between.

The Left Bank, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, contains the Médoc, Graves, and Sauternes, as well as most of the region’s most famous chateaux. Here, Merlot is commonly planted as an insurance policy in case Cabernet fails to fully ripen in difficult years. Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec may also be used in blends. This tends to be the more structured and age-worthy side of Bordeaux. Merlot is the principal variety of the Right Bank, with Cabernet Franc as its primary sidekick, with the other three varieties available for blending. The key appellations here include St. Emilion and Pomerol, whose wines are often plush, supple, and more imminently ready for drinking. Dry and sweet white wines are produced throughout the region from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and sometimes Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris. Some of the finest dry whites can be found in the the Graves sub-appellation of Pessac-Léognan, while Sauternes is undisputedly the gold standard for sweet wines. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling wine are made in Bordeaux as well.
