Let's cut right to the chase....Casanova di Neri Tenuta Nuova is THE GOLD STANDARD in modern-style Brunello di Montalcino. Like a bottle of Château Latour or Domaine Romanée-Conti in their respective regions, Casanova di Neri represents the highest standard by which modern-style Brunello producers are judged. It's really not a question of whether you should add this wine to your cellar, but more a question of just how much you will want to add.

Year in and year out for going on 20 years, proprietor Giacomo Neri and his consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini (of GIODO fame) have worked side by side to produce award-winning Brunello di Montalcinos of such consistent excellence that one could easily make the argument that they are the winemaking equivalent of a couple guys named Bill & Tom. As of the current vintage, Casanova di Neri Tenuta Nuova is on a 12-year run in which it has never received less than a 92-point rating from Robert Parker, including a 100-point rating for the "unicorn" 2010 vintage that sells for at least $200-$250 a bottle - if you can even find it.

About today's e-mail feature: The fine wine market being what it is today, the 2012 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova recently arrived at our distributor's warehouse; they need to move out the 2011 in order to make room for the new vintage. The days when distributors maintained verticals of top-tier wines are a thing of the past. As they say, situation creates opportunity, and we were more than happy to step up to the plate and swing from the heels. If you are a fan of Brunello di Montalcino, you will want to step right up as well and stock your cellars with today's offer.

Crafted from 100% Sangiovese, Tenuta Nuova is sourced from two of Casanova di Neri's estate vineyards located along the southern slope of Montalcino along with select lots from the property's other vineyard holdings. Grapes are hand-harvested and brought into the winery, where they are de-stemmed and pressed. Natural yeast fermentation and controlled temperature maceration take place in open conical vats for 3+ weeks. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 30 months followed by an additional 18 months in bottle prior to release.

Let's take a look at the press on this beauty:

95 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (3/16)
"This is another fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a deeply layered expression with bold tones of dark fruit that are softened and enhanced by spice, leather, tobacco and balsam herb. The wine is very beautiful and polished, with slightly less depth and complexity compared the outstanding (100 point) vintage that precedes it. Despite the vintage variation, this is a wine of enormous pedigree and importance. It is generous and confident, with a presentation that offers purity, intensity and persistence."

94 points James Suckling (2/16)
"A red with earthy, meaty, salty, ripe fruit aromas and flavors. Full body with round, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. So much richness and depth. Needs at least a year or two to come together."

So there you have it - here is an exquisite bottle of Brunello di Montalcino at a price that simply cannot be beat. With today's BUY THE PAIR feature, this wine comes to you at $63/bottle net, a 30% savings over the market price of $90/bottle. Purchase two, purchase three, purchase six! If Brunello is your jam, this is the wine for you. CHEERS!
