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
The two predominant characteristics of the 2012 White Label are balance and finesse, followed by intense notes of red fruit which lead to a long and silky finish. A wine that already shows its potential, which can already be appreciated now but which will give its best in the years to come.
2012 winter was considered mild until February, when snow and frost hit the area quite heavily. Those conditions provided some water storage in the ground for the rest of the growing season and let the grapes ripen slowly and regularly. Spring and summer were quite dry meaning lower yields compared to previous vintages
Manual, between the last week of September and the first of October 2012
We select the bunches manually before de-stemming and selecting the grapes with an optical 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 24 days.
