The 2012 Cerretalto Brunello di Montalcino is another masterpiece from Casanova di Neri. Year after year, this remarkable wine pushes the limits of perfection, and there is no exception in this vintage. This magnificent wine begins with absolutely striking aromatics of ripe dark berries, dark cherries, exotic spices, tobacco, graphite and spring flowers all coming together and bursting from the glass. On the palate this is remarkably structured, with outstanding overall depth and concentration. It continues to impress with its beautiful polished tannins and an incredible combination of power and sheer class through the finish. Once again Cerretalto is nothing short of utterly fascinating, and I only expect this to continue become even more compelling as it evolves gracefully over time.
