Usual very young ruby red. Great balance at the nose among small red fruits and spices followed by hints of chocolate. The greatness of the vintage comes out immediately at the first sip: amazing balance among all the components with perfectly ripe tannins and bright acidity. Everything is standing for a great immediate pleasure providing at the same time a great aging potential.

Shows fine depth, with cherry, black currant and wild herb flavors, accented by iron, earth, leather and tobacco notes. Muscular, despite a slim frame, with a long, savory aftertaste. Best from 2024 through 2045. 8,808 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.

"The Casanova di Neri 2016 Brunello di Montalcino (or the so-called 'white label' Brunello) takes a minute or two to open, and like all these new releases from the Neri family, you're best off opening your bottle five hours before serving them. This classic expression displays raspberry, tar, hazelnut, dried fig, asphalt and some crushed chalk. The wine is streamlined and compact in terms of mouthfeel, giving us an accessible Brunello from a benchmark Montalcino estate. Drink: 2023-2040. (Nov 2020)"

"[$65 list] Casanova di Neri's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a wine of pleasurable contrasts but also massive structure. Ripe dark fruits and autumnal spices offset savory herbs and hints of animal musk. It enters the mouth silky, cooling and lifted, with a noticeable inner sweetness to its polished cherry/berry flavors, but it then sways more toward inner earth, minerals and grippy tannins. The 2016 urges you to take another sip, as there's so much upfront appeal; yet each time you do, it reminds you once again that it's a painfully young Brunello in need of cellaring. That said, the potential here is incredibly high. Drink: 2026-2038. (Nov 2020)"
