Casanova di Neri Rosso di Montalcino shows how to produce a Sangiovese in our vineyards in Montalcino that can be drunk immediately.For the production we use grapes from dedicated vineyards that ensure that they receive the same attention and care as for the production of Brunello wines. The manual harvest that takes place takes place in October. The selection of the grapes before and after destemination is done by hand. Then there is a natural fermentation without the addition of artificial yeast. The maceration takes place in an open cone-shaped and temperature-controlled environment. The fermentation lasts 18 days. The wine is then aged on wood for 12-18 months before it is put on the market.

The Rosso di Montalcino shows the great potential of the Sangiovese grape without having to wait too many years. The wine has a fruity bouquet with aromas of, among others. cherries followed by soft and elegant tannins on the palate. The finish is long to very long. The wine is ready to drink but can also be stored for years. The Rosso di Montalcino of the Neri family are also (and quite rightly) called Alternative Brunellos and have often been the forerunners of because now Brunello are certified wines
