Tenuta Nuova is a pioneering and visionary vineyard project that embodies the faith and passion of Casanova di Neri. Tenuta Nuova means new property; Tenuta Nuova is a place where no one has planted Sangiovese before; with Tenuta Nuova, Casanova di Neri demonstrates its ability to produce a powerful yet drinkable Brunello with high ageing potential. The project began with the study of varied local microclimates and their optimal exposures. Through careful and passionate research, Casanova di Neri used the most advanced scientific studies to determine the clones, rhizomes, cultivation practices, planting density per hectare and all possible details to obtain excellent Sangiovese grapes for this wine.

The selection of the grapes before and after destemming is done by hand. This is followed by natural fermentation without the addition of artificial yeast. The maceration takes place in an open cone-shaped and temperature-controlled environment. The fermentation lasts 36 days. The wine then matures for 12 months in wood before being released to the market.

The bouquet is very expressive and intense, with notes of young red fruit, blackberries and the typical balsamic scent. In the mouth, it is the overall structure, persistent and rich, with silky tannins and with an excellent finish. A combination of elegance and power.

The 2016 vintage has been praised as one of the top vintages in Montalcino. Please note that the wine will only be ready to drink from 2024 onwards. If a more accessible Brunello di Montalcino is desired, go for the Brunello by Banfi.
