2007 Casanova di Neri "Tenuta Nuova" Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1084335 97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Gorgeous, opulent and rich, Tenuta Nuova is an unforgettable wine. It has body, power, persistence and loads of plush personality. It is layered with chocolate, cherry, blackberry, spice, leather and savory notes. There's a deep mineral layer as well. Compelling and lovely. *Best of 2012* Inner quote mark (5/2012)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Mushroom and earth aromas. Dark fruit and wild mushrooms, too. Full-bodied, dense and layered. Juicy, savory fruit and a favorful finish. Super wine. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova saturates the palate with masses of super-ripe dark fruit, tar, licorice and new leather. The Tenuta Nuova is an especially full-bodied, seamless Sangiovese deeply influenced by the Mediterranean climate of this warm site in the south of Montalcino. Layers of fruit build to an effortless, resonant finish laced with considerable aromatic nuance. This is another terrific showing from Giacomo Neri and his talented team. (AG) 95+ Inner quote mark (4/2012)

94 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova shows thick body mass and volume. But it also appears to be on the distant outer edge of oxidation. There is a good amount of meat on these bones with dark fruit nuances, roasted almond, honey, chestnut and pressed roses. The more evolved side of the bouquet shows smoked bacon and dried bresaola. If you have a bottle, you might start bringing it up from your cellar. (ML) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Tenuta Nuova hails from Casanova di Neri’s Le Cetine vineyard in Montalcino’s south. With a full southern exposure from east to west, it is a sun soaked, Mediterranean expression of Brunello. The 2017 takes a bit of coaxing at first but then cherry bark, cinnamon, liquorice root and gardenia arise from the glass. Upfront, gritty tannins dissolve slowly into a fine dusty powder, revealing supple, round black currants. Citrussy acidity keeps this lively while dark chocolate and mint notes linger. (MM) Inner quote mark (11/2021)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Effusive aromas of ripe cherry, plum tart and cedar lead to a macerated cherry flavor, with plenty of spice accents as this gains steam. Just a touch hot on the balance now, with assertive tannins, yet this blossoms after a few hours in the glass. (BS) Inner quote mark (9/2012)

92 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium red. Very rich aromas of plum, mocha, dried flowers, underbrush and leather, along with a liqueur-like suggestion of marc de Chateauneuf. Supple, plush and highly concentrated, with superripe fruit flavors slightly leavened by harmonious acidity. A distinctly viscous, fruit-driven wine that could use a bit more class and definition but will please fans of outsized Brunello. Finishes with a bit of youthful aggressiveness. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2012)
