Lovely soft cherry, violet and vanilla. Not complex but a really user friendly BDM.

Luminous deep red. Captivating aromas of sweet red berries, cinnamon, violet and licorice. Then also very fruity in the mouth; refined, juicy red plum and raspberry flavors linger brightly on the fresh back end. Has a delightful red fruit cocktail quality that makes it practically impossible to put the glass back down. And though it is simply bursting at the seams with early appeal, this truly lovely Brunello will also age well. Unless my memory fails me, this may well be the best entry-level wine from Casanova di Neri that I have ever tasted. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2018)

This is top level Brunello for the money. Some of the best I’ve had.

Smoky, earthy nose. Plenty of tannins, dry, and medium-to-full body. Palate is loaded with dark fruit.

Open for 7 hours. Complex and evolving wine. Violets, tar, leather, tobacco, blackberry fruits, and rosemary too. You can feel a little of the oak usage on the nose still. Medium plus weight with tannin outshining acidity at this point. Blackcherry fruit meets tart cranberry. This is big boy Brunello with serious aging potential. Sit for at least 5 years as this will only improve.
