Casanova di Neri Cerretalto Brunello Montalcino 2013
GIOVANNI NERI TASTING NOTES 94 POINTS The 2013 vintage best represents the Cerretalto work of art: deepness, intensity, and greatness. Once poured in the glass shows a bright ruby red color while the bouquet has the unmistakable graphite followed by hints of young and dark red fruits, chocolate and licorice. In the mouth is immense, thick and elegant at the same time with an incredible and persistent finish. Tannins are perfectly smoothed and integrated. The Cerretalto 2013 has a long life ahead. It should be opened at least 3 hours in advance at the recommended service temperature.
VINTAGE NOTES: Winter has been quite cold with many days of rain despite the warmer beginning. Spring was a bit postponed compared to previous years, with higher temperatures and light rainy periods. Summer began from early June with mild temperatures and a good rainfall that was well spread out all over the season. August rainstorms significantly lowered the temperatures especially at night and enhanced the aromatic expression, leading to a perfect ripening.
