CASANOVA DI NERI Cerretalto, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2012

Cerretalto is a single vineyard Brunello from one of the very best sites in the region. The wine is made only in exceptional years when the quality of fruit warrants. The best fruit from the site is hand harvested, sorted, destemmed and crushed before undergoing wild yeast fermentation in open vats. The temperature controlled fermentation lasts 3-4 weeks and then the wine is transferred to oak barrels for 31 months followed by a further 30 months in bottle. The wine is kept back in the winery for 6 years before release.

Region Tuscany

The picturesque region of Tuscany produces some of the greatest food wines in the world that offer a richness and complexity with Franceuit and savoury characters attributable to the noble Sangiovese grape variety. This 58,000 ha region is dominated by Sangiovese of various clones and classifications with the most famous being Chianti, Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, as well as the “Super Tuscans” usually based on Sangiovese with various amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Syrah in the blend. Tuscany enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate that provides ideal ripening conditions. Red wines dominate with 70% of production and 60% is of DOC or DOCG status. The complex and rich white wine Vernaccia di San Gimignano and the Vin Santo dessert wines made in the Passito, dried grape method are other specialties of the region.
