Wine AdvocateThis is another fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a deeply layered expression with bold tones of dark fruit that are softened and enhanced by spice, leather, tobacco and balsam herb. The wine is very beautiful and polished with slightly less depth and complexity compared the outstanding (100 point) vintage that precedes it. Despite the vintage variation, this is a wine of enormous pedigree and importance. It is generous and confident with a presentation that offers purity, intensity and persistence.
Wine SpectatorLively, laced with cherry, raspberry, licorice and mineral flavors. The fine harmony allows this to linger on the aftertaste. Should develop well. Best from 2018 through 2029. 4,100 cases made.
