WHAT

90% Sangiovese Grosso with 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot

WHERE

Casanova di Neri was started in the Cerretalto vineyard, located in a natural amphitheater overlooking the Asso River in Tuscany's commune of Montalcino. This area was previously thought less desirable for growing Sangiovese Grosso because of its cooler climate, but it was what Giovanni New could afford at the time and so he forged ahead with his project and consciously harvested lower yields in order to maintain quality. With climate change bringing overall warmer weather, cooler vintages are no longer a concern.

WHEN

2018

HOW

Vines grown in Montalcino's valuable Galestro soil, rich with limestone and clay.  Organic farming, ambient yeast fermentation, aged in oak barrels for a little over one year, bottled unfiltered.  

WHY

Giovanni Neri dreamed of having a winery in this historical place.  He had to make some compromises to start the project and his dedication has certainly shone through.
