Casanova di Neri 2018 IrRosso di Montalcino is the winery's most recent creation and is the most approachable of Neri's wines at an early stage of development. It is made primarily from relatively young Brunello (Sangiovese) grapes, but does not qualify for the Brunello or Rosso di Montalcino denomination because it also contains some Colorino grapes, traditional of Chianti, and the Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Aromatic notes of cherry and violet prevail along with small, red fruits and balsamic hints while, on the palate, it shows a good balance between acidity and soft tannins with a bright, clean finish.
