Casanova di Neri proudly produces the White Label Brunello since 1978. Our passion and love for the land and our own distinctive Sangiovese joined together to make a wine that stands out for elegance, finesse, high quality and long ageing potential.
Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
In 2011 we did not bottle the Cerretalto which was used for the blending of this white label brunello, as already happened with the 2009 and 2005 vintages. Enjoyable immediately but with good aging potential. It is advisable to drink it at a temperature of 16°-18° by opening it a few hours before or decanting it delicately.
The seasonal trend of 2011 (cool May, June and the first half of July, very hot second half of July and above all August) led to a White Label brunello with fine and elegant tannins.
Manual, 3rd and 4th week of September 2011
Manual selection of the grapes first and - after destemming - by optic selector. After that, spontaneous fermentation without added yeasts follows and maceration is facilitated by frequent pressing. Everything takes place in conical steel vats at controlled temperature for 23 days.
