We have a few cases left for those that missed out on our previous offer earlier this month. One of the first 2019s we offered, giving a glimpse into the beauty of this next great vintage. This is drinking beautifully now and pairs perfectly with a simple dinner at home or with cured meats with pepper or herbs. The 2019 Rosso di Montalcino from Casanova di Neri is a joy to drink, and highly recommend.
See our original offer below.
2019 is a sensational vintage for Tuscany and Piedmont, and what we've tasted has impressed us. The 2019 Casanova di Neri Rosso di Montalcino is a great way to sample the wines from this excellent producer at bargain pricing. We tend to love Rosso di Montalcino because they have a bit more purity, showcasing the Sangiovese grape's beauty since they see less time in the barrel, making the fruit stand out a bit more. The 2019 here has gorgeous Aromas of wild berry, blueberry, minerals, spice, underbrush, violets, and a touch of brown sugar. The palate is lively and fresh with excellent tension and the flavors of red fruits and minerals staining the finish. This carries that same quality we expect from the Casanova di Neri's Brunello's, and after six months or so in the bottle, this should be singing.
Tasting Note by Eric Guido "Crushed black cherries and hints of wild strawberry waft up from the 2019 Rosso di Montalcino, with smoky minerals and savory herbs evolving in the glass. Its textures are fleshy and soft, caressing the senses with ripe red fruits, as brisk acids create a juicy expression. Nothing is out of place in this high-energy, fun and fruit-forward Rosso, which finishes wonderfully fresh, framed by a hint of tart berries clinging to the palate."
