2018 Casanova di Neri Cerretalto, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Italy

Cerretalto is a special blend of intuition, passion and vision – the hallmark of all Casanova di Neri’s work. The grapes hail mainly from a vineyard situated in a natural amphitheatre alongside a small river. The prized white truffles which grow in our private truffle reserve here bear witness to the purity of this environment. Soil rich in minerals, a very particular microclimate and low yield per plant coupled with our experience, dedication and passion for our work in the vineyard and in the cellar make Cerretalto a wine of immense character and harmonious structure. It's a wine of exceptional quality, personality and inimitable style – the perfect expression of the territory that nurtures it, the distillation of our idea of what a great Brunello should be. Cerretalto is a wine of outstanding character. Its uniqueness lies in the aroma’s graphite notes and sanguine undertones, and the extraordinary length and persistence of flavour on the palate. Its collection of accolades is incredible and unmatched: 100/100 Wine Advocate, 100/100 Wine Spectator, 100/100 James Suckling, 100/100 Falstaff, 100/100 Luca Gardini, 100/100 International Wine Report, 100/100 Wine Enthusiast.

Giovanni Neri Tasting Notes
Cerretalto 2018 shows a young and lively red. The nose expresses a mix of fresh red fruits, spices and the usual graphite. On the palate it’s rich and harmonious, showing an elegant and fine structure that fully reflects the 2018 harvest. The finish is balanced and very precise, with a present acidity that perfectly balances the persistence, the deepness and the roundness of this wine.

Vintage Notes
The winter of 2018 was very cold, with temperatures so low that bud break occurred a week later than had been the norm for previous years. Spring rainfall was plentiful. The vines bloomed in the final week of May. Summer began cool, and June and July went by without extreme heat. A large range in diurnal temperatures in the period prior to harvest allowed the grapes to mature slowly and steadily.

Harvest
Manual, 2nd week of October

Vinification
Manual selection of the grapes before and after destemming, followed by a spontaneous fermentation without the addition of artificial yeast. Maceration is assisted by a falling down system, and everything is carried out inside open cone-shaped and temperature controlled fermenters for 32 days.

Showing dried blackberry, balsam herb, vapor rub and a hint of charred chili spice, this wine offers an aromatic profile that is very much in line with a vintage that saw cool spring temperatures and a hot summer. The Casanova di Neri 2018 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is a wine of depth, dusty tannins and a slightly evolved fruit character. I tasted this 2018 Cerretalto next to the estate's new releases from 2019, and the latter vintage certainly offers more overall clarity and crunch. The Neri family does great work with tannin management, and although there is some chalkiness here, the wine's structure is expertly folded into the fruit concentration. Only 9,700 bottles were made. Reviewed by Monica Larner, Issue Date December 2023. Drinking window: 2026 - 2050.
