Day 130 Drink: Tenuta Nuova 2004 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Casanova di Neri was established in 1971 in the heart of Tuscany. The vineyards south of Siena include 138 acres that produce great Brunello wines.
Tenuta Nuova 2004 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is made with 100 percent Sangiovese grapes and, after 23 days of maceration and fermentation, aged in French oak for 29 months. The wine offers full, dry ripe berries, with hints of wood. The wine has smooth tannins and a long finish. A big Italian red.
