After an old terraced vineyard had been recalimed in 1991, and the soil renewed, with the aid of technological innovations, the hillside slope was densely planted with low vines. “Collina Zinzèle” was thus created with the vines growing on the steepest side of the slope in order to achieve a limited yield of superior grapes from every vine.
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.
