Heiner Lobenberg über:
Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto 2016


Lobenberg: Ganz klar aus dem Hause Casanova di Neri: fleischig, dicht, immens voll. Man wartet nun auf den Hammer, den Turbo, der diesen Kultwein offensichtlich macht und alles erklärt. Doch zunächst wird er erst mal fein und zeigt sich als klassischer Sangiovese Grosso um dann mit dichten Tanninen und einer speziellen Aromatik von intensiver dunkler Kirsche, Johannisbeere und Eisen den Unterschied zu machen. Sein fein strukturierter Gerbstoff lässt die Aromen immer wieder am Gaumen nachklingen. Einer der ersten Einzellagenweine Montalcinos extrem gesucht und das bei lediglich 7000 Flaschen Gesamtproduktion. Ein ganz großer Wein. 100/100


Suckling über: Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto

-- Suckling: This has incredible energy and depth, with a tight, firm and powerful tannin frame that is present throughout. Full-bodied with a deep core of dark fruit, slate, minerals and iron. Oyster shells, porcini, licorice and some cedar, too. More closed than the 2015. Great wine. Try this after a couple of years. It will last for decades. 100/100


International Wine Report über: Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto

-- International Wine Report: The 2016 Casanova di Neri Cerretalto Brunello di Montalcino is an absolutely stunning wine. Cerretalto pushes the limits of perfection each vintage and it has earned the reputaiton as not only one of the finest wines from Montalcino, but in all of Italy. It begins to impress as it offers a gorgeous aromatic profile of dark cherries, dark plums, exotic spices, balsam, black tea, florals and earthy nuances which all take shape beautifully. The palate is just as impressive, as this young Brunello displays a stunning full body with remarkable overall balance. It is impeccably structured and defined, with a striking textural richness that is underlined by a wonderful sense of fresh acidity that carries it into the long finish. This is an utterly thrilling wine that is impressive in its youth, however it is ultimately a wine that is built to last the test of time. I would suspect this will require at least five to ten years of cellaring before it begins to enter its prime drinking window. The Neri Family have once again produced one of the finest wines in the world with this brilliant release. 100/100


Parker über: Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto

-- Parker: Here's an important keepsake from a classic vintage. The Casanova di Neri 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto needs time to open, especially if you plan to drink the wine earlier than is recommended (you're best off waiting five years or more). This powerful wine is packed tight with black fruit, plum and summer ripe cherry. Those dark fruit tones segue to spice, baked clay, balsam herb and gardening soil. The oak is always more apparent in the Cerretalto (which is released one year later, as if it were a Riserva) compared to the Tenuta Nuova. The vineyard used makes a big difference, giving this wine more textural weight and thicker fiber. It's all a question of taste, but if you want power (with 15% alcohol), richness, sensuality and voluptuousness in your Brunello, Cerretalto is the bottle at the end of the rainbow. 98/100


Wine Spectator über: Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto

-- Wine Spectator: A dense, racy and expressive red, offering black cherry, black currant, violet, iron and a hint of rosemary aromas and flavors. This is driven by vivid acidity and refined tannins, which lend both finesse and length. Features great harmony and elegance. Best from 2025 through 2047. 98/100
