Casanova di Neri's Brunello di Montalcino (White Label) 2018 offers a vivid and rich embodiment of the Sangiovese grape, produced by one of Tuscany's esteemed winemakers. Known for the consistency in quality across vintages, Casanova di Neri has crafted a 2018 Brunello that upholds its reputation.
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.
The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino strikes a balance between the power and elegance that Brunello is renowned for. Translucent and bright ruby red color. Its appealing and fascinating nose immediately reveals the freshness of the vintage 2018 followed by hues of nutmeg and crisp red berries. On the palate it is well-hatched, generous and measured at the same time. It shows overall great balance between tannic texture and acidity. Perfectly enjoyable even young.
The Casanova di Neri White Label 2018 holds its robustness with grace and finesse. Its full-bodied character does not overpower, but instead, invites exploration of its layers and complexity. The finish is persistently pleasing, showcasing a lasting warmth and a recurrence of the harmonious blend of fruit and earthy elements.
Much like its predecessors, this 2018 Brunello shows potential for aging. Given time in the cellar, it is expected to evolve, further revealing layers of depth and character. For lovers of Tuscan wines, the Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2018 offers a compelling tasting journey and a promising future.
