Casanova di Neri
- "Giacomo Neri is brutally honest in describing 2008 as a challenging vintage marked by significant rain and hail events. Overall production is down 40% across the board. Neri’s 2008s are impressive for the year, however, and are a testament to a grower who is willing to make the hard choices necessary to ensure consistently high quality." (Wine Advocate)
- “Giacomo Neri makes some of the most exciting modern-styled Brunellos in the zone. Neri is a fervent believer in low yields, and while his wines boast notable concentration, they also show remarkable elegance and expressiveness.” (The Wine Advocate)
“Our greatest pride is our vineyards: their high quality and their history.” – Giacomo Neri Casanova di Neri was established in 1971 when Giovanni Neri acquired a large estate within Montalcino. Since then his singular goal has been the search for land optimal for growing high quality grapes. In 1991 his son Giacomo took over direction of the estate and winemaking. His 138 acres are divided into four distinct areas: Pietradonice in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, Cetine in Sant'Angelo in Colle, Cerretalto and Fiesole. As the grapes have improved in quality, more care and attention has occured in the winery - from vinification to the careful selection and use of casks of different sizes and made from different types of wood - but always with the maximum respect for tradition.
