JS96 Beautiful clarity on the nose with lavender, raspberry and violet aromas. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a long, fresh and simply fantastic finish. Best ever. Better in 2021.
The vineyards of Casanuova delle Cerbaie are located just north of Montalcino between 280 and 370 meters above sea level on soil dating back to the Eocene period. The prevailing south-west exposition of the vineyards both on the prestigious hill of Montosoli and surrounding the winery at Casanuova offer a particularly moderate climate, sheltered by natural barriers to the North and West.
The winery was founded in the late 1970s but since 2008 it has been owned by an American with a passion for classically styled Montalcino wines. The vineyards are farmed according to organic protocols, though they are not certified; all fermentations are spontaneous, and all aging is done in Stockinger casks from 20 – 25 hectoliters in size. Approximately 3000 cases, mostly of Brunello, are produced each year.
