    January 6, 2020 - Decanted 1 hour. CdN continues to impress with this bold wine: dense dark fruit, cedar, spice washing the palate likes waves on a beach. Beautiful structure and finesse. Should drink well for years to come.

    January 5, 2020 - Pour ceux qui pensent que c`est trop jeune, simple, pas prêt
    ou encore pire que c`est trop moderne, on manque ici un super
    beau vin complexe et assez complet.
    Du moins cette bouteille, qui était tout à fait superbe.
    Nez sur les fruits rouges, les épices, les herbes et le cèdre.
    En bouche, belle acidité et une belle fraicheur.
    Des cerises, de la terre, de l`anis, du menthol et
    une pointe de graphite.
    Les tannins sont bien enrobés et la finale interminable
    sur des relents de minéraux.
    Superbe et à un prix assez accessible dans le temps.

    January 1, 2020 - Superbe bouteille. Équilibre parfait entre le bois et le fruit. Long et concentré en bouche. L'alcool est encore un peu trop perceptible cependant. Devrait gagner quelques point au cours de la prochaine décénie.

    December 5, 2019 - Don Juan or Casanova

    For the better part of my life I have been referred to as “Don Juan.” I’m not sure why as my prowess as a womanizer falls far short of that definition. Needless, there are those that to this day still use that moniker around me. I guess my reputation could stand “a little” shot to move things along.

    Now the term “Casanova” has not been used in that same vein, it’s just a catchy tie-in to the wine that I had the other day.

    Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova 2010

    Tenuta Nuova means “new property;” a place where nobody has planted Sangiovese before, and the wine named as such is considered by some, myself included, to be the flagship of their winery. Produced from 100% Sangiovese grapes, the grapes undergo meticulous destemming and hand sorting prior to fermentation. Afterward spending no less than 36 months in oak followed by one year in the bottle before it is allowed to be sent out for consumption by those who seek one of the finest examples of Brunello around. Others must also think so as this is only the second wine that I have had that achieved the high honor of receiving TWO 100 Point Reviews!

    Breaking open, actually using the good ole Coravin to extend the pleasure received from this wine over a two-day non-consecutive period, the wine for a reasonably special occasion, I knew the wine would only heighten the focus and elevate the pleasure for the day. And it certainly did that!

    The wine itself is nothing less than elegant and substantive; opening with deep dark black/blue fruit that melds with a rustic, almost forest-like, quality lending minerality to the wine. The tannins are present but nearing a softness that leaves you with a subtleness that combines with the near-perfect acidity, bringing you closer to a finish that unlocks a spiciness that stays with you for an extended period of time, long enough so you can bask in its magnificence.

    You don’t need to be in a rush to open this wine, it has been masterfully crafted to allow many more years of aging to occur before you need to entertain that thought. Should you have multiple bottles on hand however, don’t be afraid to open one as this wine can add to your enjoyment now, just give it an hour or two of decant time.

    Though my “Don Juan” status is still in question, there should be none concerning this wine. While the 2010s are probably very hard to come by, newer vintages should be available and from the samples I have had, compare very favorably to 2010, so enjoy.

    Cheers
