2006 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1194201 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is fabulous in this vintage. Waves of dark fruit caress the palate as this juicy, delicious wine reveals its considerable charms. The fruit shows lovely weight and richness while maintaining an essentially mid-weight personality. Sweet scents of French oak linger on the round, caressing, impeccable finish. This is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next decade-plus. The harvest took place from the 2nd to the 5th of October. The wine spent 24 days on the skins, after which it was racked into cask, where it spent 45 months prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark There are plenty of cherry and plum flavors in this rich red, along with notes of bramble, spice and camphor. The tannins are dense and assertive now, and a sweet fruit component balances the finish, ending with a long aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2027. (BS) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full red. Musky, oak-influenced aromas of mocha, coffee and cocoa powder. Then juicy and sweet in the mouth, with ripe, harmonious acidity framing the chewy red fruit and dried rose flavors. Surprisingly delineated in light of the nose. Finishes with serious but fine dusty tannins and excellent length. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2011)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This Brunello offers unbeatable quality for price. The wine opens with beautiful fullness, generosity and round, soft contours. Aromas include exotic spice and mature cherry. That typical Sangiovese brightness livens the mouthfeel. *Editors' Choice* Inner quote mark (4/2011)
