BRUN 2009 CASANOVA WHITE LABEL

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is an impressive and impeccable wine that delivers a slow and sensual progression on the palate. Along the way, it leaves a steady stream of ripe fruit, spice, tobacco, licorice and balsam herb that is both impactful and vibrant. The wine’s aromas are very well-delineated, clean and never color outside the lines. The textural fabric of the wine is velvety and rich, thanks to a long 43 months in oak. Having had the opportunity to taste many older vintages of Giacomo’s wines, I find that they possess a great capacity for cellar aging."

JAMES SUCKLING 90 POINTS - "Ripe blueberry and berry character with hints of orange peel. Full body, velvety tannins and a medium finish. Drink or hold."

This wine is sourced from the vineyards located on the the southern slope of Montalcino - “Pietradonice” and “Le Cetine” - and from one of the estate's massal selections of Sangiovese. Brunello di Montalcino Casanova di Neri is characterised simply by its white label, to the point where it has now been renamed “White label” on the American market. This “Etichetta bianca” is born in vineyards that look to Montalcino from the east, at an altitude which varies from 350 to 480 metres above sea level, very close to the cellar. The main characteristics of this wine are elegance, finesse, and longevity. It matures in big old barrels for about 42-45 months and perfectly represents the estate's desire to express a product distinguished by character and tradition. Serving temperature: 16-18°C; open 4-5 hours before serving and, if possible, pour immediately into a decanter, gently and delicately. Serving suggestions: red meats and mature cheeses.
