Casanuova delle Cerbaie 2015 Brunello di Montalcino

$ 5499 $ 5999

Winemaker Notes

The flagship bottling of the estate, fruit comes from a mix of their vineyard holdings, most of which are located on the hill of Montosoli endowing this wine with a more lifted and floral character than is typical of most of Montalcino.

Brunello di Montalcino is a visibly limpid, brilliant wine, with a bright garnet color. It has an intense perfume, persistent, ample and ethereal. One can recognize scents of undergrowth, aromatic wood, berries, light vanilla and jam. To the taste the wine has an elegant harmonious body, vigorous and racy, it is dry with a lengthy aromatic persistence. 

Critical Acclaim

93pts James Suckling
There’s a toffee character here that’s almost reminiscent of a tawny Port. Dried cedar, black tea, bark, eucalyptus and tea tree oil are in play. There are no rough edges to the palate, which is medium to full in body and elegant and reserved, the fruit gliding along in the wake of resolved, polished tannins.
92pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Rather than the sweet oak nuances you get with the contemporary school of Brunello, this wine offers savory and spicy oak undertones. The Casanuova delle Cerbaie 2015 Brunello di Montalcino pours from the bottle with a dark garnet color and browning sepia highlights. Well suited for a finely executed risotto of porcini or morels, this wine presents traditional Brunello aromas of dried fruit, wild cherry, crushed rose, potting soil and dark spice.
