    One of the most impressive and elegant Brunello that we've come across, the Casanuova della Cerbaie Brunello di Montalcino is made from 100% Sangiovese - locally called Brunello - that is sourced largely from the famed Montosoli cru just north of the town of Montaclino. With vineyards between 300 and 350 meters above sea level, the moderate climate favors elegant, aromatic styles of Sangiovese with plenty of depth and structure for aging - all qualities that are easily found in the Casanuova della Cerbaie. It is aged in large Slavonian oak casks for 36 months before a further 10 months aging in bottle.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a classy, elegant wine laced with sweet red cherries, subtle herbs and hints of tobacco. Cedar and leather appear later, adding further complexity. This is an interesting Brunello that presents an essentially classic aromatic and flavor profile, but with a little more textural richness and depth than most wines made in a similar vein. A long, generous finish rounds things out nicely. Today the 2006 is still quite primary, but it certainly has the potential to develop into an even more beautiful wine in a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.
