Casanova di Neri

The Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova came about thanks to the desire to produce a Brunello of great character. We began by searching for land which we believe to be in the best position. The microclimate of the terrain includes the botanical species lentiscus, ilatro, thyme, fillera, marruca, and a type of juniper which demonstrate the exceptional quality of the vineyards of Pietrodonice and Le Cetine. This passionate search together with highly scientific methods in determining the clones, the grafting, the type of cultivation, the density per hectare of the vines and every other minor detail have taken place to obtain excellent Sangiovese grapes. It is aged in small oak casks for 24 to 30 months according to the vintage and then for at least a year in the bottle.

Wine Enthusiast

A "Wow!" wine on every level. 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.

Score: 97. —Monica Larner, April 01, 2011.

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 flavors, with a sweet ripeness that matches the refined tannins. There's a fine aftertaste of fruit and spice. Best from 2014 through 2027. 4,393 cases made.

Score: 95. —Bruce Sanderson, October 15, 2011.

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.

Score: 95. —Antonio Galloni, May 2011.

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.

Score: 100. January 15, 2011.
