CASANOVA DI NERI BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO TENUTA NUOVA 2010 (6) 100 WA


CASANOVA DI NERI BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO TENUTA NUOVA 2010 TUSCANY. THE 2010 BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO TENUTA NUOVA IS A PROTAGONIST OF THE VINTAGE. THE FRUIT IS DEEP AND DARK WITH RICH LEVELS OF EXTRACT, INTENSITY AND FLAVOR. IT GOES FAR BEYOND YOUR STANDARD CHERRY AND BLACKBERRY TO INCLUDE PLUM CAKE, SPICE BREAD AND BACON-WRAPPED PRUNE. NOTHING IS OBVIOUS OR MONOCHROMATIC ABOUT THIS WINE. EVERYTHING IS NUANCED AND ETHEREAL. TENUTA NUOVA IS ALSO DISTINGUISHED BY THE LINEAR MINERAL NOTES THAT ARE CHARACTERISTIC OF THIS SINGLE-VINEYARD SITE. IN 2010, THOSE TRAITS ARE ESPECIALLY WELL-DEFINED AND PRONOUNCED. THE TANNINS REACH A LEVEL OF SUPPLENESS THAT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND IN THE SOMETIMES PRICKLY AND ACIDIC SANGIOVESE GRAPE. FEBRUARY 2015 100 WA 6 BTS. PER LOT $1,100 - $1,600




Price Realised: $3900
