    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about two hours.

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of barnyard, thistle, black cherry and black berry. Flavors of black berries, black raspberries and black cherries. Medium to tangy acidity, medium to firm tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold.

    November 20, 2019 - Really good, drinking well, better than the bottle we had 6 months ago. Decanted but was good to drink immediately after opening. Very tasty with short ribs.

    August 13, 2019 - Brunello di Montalcino tasting (Riga, Latvia): 🏅Rating 91/100 (4,1⭐)

    Cloudy w/ sediment. Ripe jammy fruits. Bit of smoked meat.

    August 1, 2019 - In my cellar since release, second of 4-750's and 1-magnum. Decanted at 3pm for dinner at a local restaurant from 7-9pm. This one is quite confounding...it has characteristics than some people have noted as seriously flawed yet some hints of the high quality I saw in my previous bottle. The wine is extremely dense and dark with no bricking. The nose at first is very powerfully stewed with pruny and earthy aroma's as well as chocolate (brett?). It never quite blows off and yet glasses of it over time show varying degrees of this. On the palate it is much better in that it shows good acidity as well as delineated dark fruit flavors like black plum and pomegranate and cherry liqueur along with a slightly hot alcoholic undertone (I get the port-like references some have noted) Can't really decide if I like it or not. Finish is pretty long but this is awkward and probably flawed, though if it is brett, it would have been ok if it was throttled down a notch or two.(?) Very big, powerful full-bodied Brunello yet not harsh or excessively tannic. A real puzzlement...

    The initial notes on the wine at the 2-3 hour point before going to dinner...will revisit the note after dinner.

    With dinner the stewed prune was a little less obtrusive but still there...was decent with a beautifully cooked venison sirloin at Restaurant Lorena in Maplewood, NJ... but in the end I'll still say flawed, probably brett.

    (CASANOVA NERI BRUNELLO TENUTA NUOVA) #3; COLOR-tremendous, dark for a Brunello; NOSE-great, strawberries & huge Vanilla extract, hints of: strawberry, cranberry, cedar box, menthol; TASTE-if you're a big fan of Syrah and CA cult Cabs, you like this wine; very good, very structured, ton of fruit, very extracted, crushed blackberries & raspberries w/ hints of cinnamon & vanilla extract, very luscious & fruity, super silky finish, but not like a traditional Brunello, more like a New World fruit bomb, ; WS's 2006 Wine of the YEAR; WS-97; GV-93
