Casanova de Neri was founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri who in 1991 handed the reigns down to his son Giacomo and in forty years has established a remarkable reputation. The vineyards consist of 36 hectares divided into four distinctive areas; Le Cetine cited in Sant’Angelo, in Colle; Il Pietradonice in Castelnuovo dell’Abate and Il Cerretalto and Il Fiesole, which are found close to the Estate’s farmhouse, directly facing the hill of Montalcino. Tenuta Nuova is the summit of the Neri family’s winemaking prowess, sourced from the Pietrodonice and Le Cetine vineyards. The Pietrodonice vineyard is cited at 250-300 meters above sea level with a southeast facing exposure. This vineyard is one of the most remarkable in the world, as it is planted on an old onyx quarry, rich in Galestro and naturally onyx. Le Cetine vineyard is cited 275-320 metres above sea level, with southwest exposure. The soil is rich in galestro, tuffa and clay, surrounded and thus protected by woods. Tenuta Nouva receives the very best grapes form these vineyards, which are rigorously sorted, de-stemmed and passed into the gravity filled fermentation vats. Fermentation is started without using yeast additives and maceration takes place in open conical vats controlled for three to four weeks. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 30 months and then 15 months in bottle.
