The Pietradonice is the famous Super Tuscan of Casanova di Neri. In Montalcino there are few alternatives to the local Sangiovese grape and wines of this quality made with Cabernet Sauvignon can be counted on one hand. Through decades of accumulated experience and the desire to create a great Cabernet-Sauvignon in Montalcino, Casanova di Neri presents Pietradonice. The aim was to plant this international grape in the area southeast of Montalcino, which still expresses the personality of the terroir. This Cabernet Sauvignon is formed by the strength of the terroir, care in the vineyard and the knowledge gained in the wine cellar. In 2000 the first Pietradonice set was produced. The name "Pietradonice" comes from the very rich stone that is in the ground.

The Pietradonice shows a rich and dark saturated color, followed by ripe aromas of blackberries, plums, spices and sweet tobacco. The wine has an optimal ripeness of the tannins, which gives this wine a surprisingly smooth texture, certainly in contrast to the stiffer sangiovese brothers. This wine can age wonderfully like a top Bordeaux. Only around 6,500 bottles of the Pietradonice are always made and only in the top years.
