Cerretalto, 2013, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
The Cerretalto is the synthesis of intuition, passion and vision, characteristics that have been a continual expression of Casanova di Neri.
An extraordinary concentration of mineral in the soil imparts an unique impression only in certain vintages and only thanks to a Sangiovese grape from small, straggly bunches. With this decisive contribution of human dedication, love for the work of the earth and great attention in the cellar can a wine reach exceptional quality, personality and unique style that fully expresses the territory of its origin.

Summer began from early june with mild temperatures and a good rainfall that was well spread out all over the season.
August rainstorms significantly lowered the temperatures especially at night and enhanced the aromatic expression, leading to a perfect ripening.

The 2013 vintage best represents the Cerretalto work of art: deepness, intensity, and greatness.
Once poured in the glass shows a bright ruby red color while the bouquet has the unmistakable graphite followed by hints of young and dark red fruits, chocolate and liquorice.
In the mouth is immense, thick and elegant at the same time with an incredible and persistent finish. Tannins are perfectly smoothed and integrated.
The Cerretalto 2013 has a long life ahead.
