2013 Casanova di Neri * Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova
EMAIL SIX PACK DEAL- $599.95 ($99.99btl)
Casanova di Neri’s 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is celebrating its 20th anniversary (1993-2013), and a special gold-label edition of the wine was made to commemorate this important milestone. I tasted the white label for this review. This is a bold and expressive Brunello that displays tightly knit aromas of Morello cherry, spice, leather and balsam herb that are the building blocks of the most beautiful Brunellos that come to mind. The Casanova di Neri house style implies a modern and sophisticated approach for sure. But the inner spirit and texture of Sangiovese is so fine and polished in its natural state that it hardly matters. The personality of the grape shines through with a loud and confident voice.
2013 Il Marroneto * Brunello di Montalcino
EMAIL SIX PACK DEAL- $419.95 ($69.99btl)
Il Marroneto’s 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine and one that invites you to partake in a long evening of good food and even better company. This is a deeply convivial expression of Sangiovese that offers just a glimmer of much-needed informality and coziness to guarantee comfort. But make no mistake, this Brunello reminds you of its pedigree and precision as well. The bouquet opens to white cherry, fragrant rose blossom and violets. The finish is smooth and pliable, with graceful endnotes of smoke and crushed mineral.
2013 Il Marroneto * Brunello di Montalcino Madonna Delle Grazie- VERY LIMITED
EMAIL SIX PACK DEAL IN OWC – $1079.95 ($179.99btl)
Sangiovese-whisperer Alessandro Mori has delivered another superstar wine with the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna Delle Grazie. The bouquet is detailed and fine with bright accents of fragrant red rose, red currant, cola, licorice, grilled herb and crushed white peppercorn. The bouquet is loose, light and buoyant, with a smooth and natural progression of building aromas. The mouthfeel, however, is direct, important and determined. It’s that playful juxtaposition between the wine’s soft side and its stern side that makes this such an interesting and sensational wine to drink. Only 5,993 bottles were produced, and that’s the bad news.
