Through decades of accumulated experience and the desire to create a great Cabernet Sauvignon in Montalcino, Casanova di Neri presents Pietradonice. The objective was to plant this international variety in the area south-east of Montalcino, still expressing the personality that distinguished our vineyards. This Cabernet Sauvignon is shaped by the power of the land, careful vineyard work and wisdom in the cellar producing a wine in which the territory excels at blending. The 2000 vintage was the first produced. The name comes from the very rich stone found in the earth.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
