Heiner Lobenberg über:
Brunello di Montalcino 2016

95
/100

Lobenberg: Herrliche Kirscharomen, ungemein duftig mit einem Hauch von Waldhimbeere unterlegt. Sehr fein, dabei auch tänzelnd am Gaumen, sofort kommen Assoziationen an Chambolle-Musigny auf. Dann setzt ein straffer Gerbstoff ein, wie alle Weine von Giacomo Neri, extrem genau gezeichnet. Sehr lang und auf den Punkt, extrem puristisch und voller Eleganz! 94/100

Falstaff über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Falstaff: Funkelndes intensives Rubin mit feinem Granatschimmer. Sehr klare und präzise Nase, duftet nach reifen, ganzen Zwetschken, im Hintergrund Tabak und Kardamom. Klar und präsent am Gaumen, öffnet sich mit viel griffigem Tannin in mehreren Schichten, saftige Frucht, alles eingebettet in feinen Schmelz, satter Druck im Nachhall. 96/100

Jeb Dunnuck über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino has compelling aromatics of cherry liqueur, sweet licorice, cedar, and forested earth. The palate is crystalline and full-bodied, with red plum skin and warming spice. There is a lot to love here, as this wine casts a large net for its versatility. Enjoy some now and lay some down, this is a great value. Drink 2021-2026 95/100

Winespectator über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Winespectator: Shows fine depth, with cherry, black currant and wild herb flavors, accented by iron, earth, leather and tobacco notes. Muscular, despite a slim frame, with a long, savory aftertaste. Best from 2024 through 2045. 95/100

Decanter über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Decanter: The 2016 vintage was marked by significant day and nighttime temperature differences. Gianlorenzo Neri says this was particularly pronounced in Montalcino’s northeast, where the vineyards for the estate’s ‘white label’ are found. With beautiful focus off the bat, this grabs your attention immediately. Black raspberry and wild cherry give way to liquorice, wet stones and smoke. The fruit is velvety, but quickly hemmed in by powdery, grippy tannins which retreat a bit on the finish, likes waves, leaving rose and violets in their wake. Vibrant and racy. 95/100

International Wine Report über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- International Wine Report: The 2016 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino is absolutely outstanding in this vintage. This instantly begins to impress as it unwinds beautifully in the glass, releasing gorgeous nuances of dried cherries, raspberries, exotic spices, crushed dried florals, herbs, leather, minerals, cedar and subtle hints of nutmeg all come together to form the wonderful aromatics. On the palate this offers a lovely medium body that is structured with fine grained tannins and displays incredible balance and finesse all the way through the finish. This is already drinking incredibly well at this early stage and is clearly one of the finest releases of this “white label” Brunello I can recall from the Neri Family. 95/100

Galloni über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Galloni: Casanova di Neri's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a wine of pleasurable contrasts but also massive structure. Ripe dark fruits and autumnal spices offset savory herbs and hints of animal musk. It enters the mouth silky, cooling and lifted, with a noticeable inner sweetness to its polished cherry/berry flavors, but it then sways more toward inner earth, minerals and grippy tannins. The 2016 urges you to take another sip, as there’s so much upfront appeal; yet each time you do, it reminds you once again that it’s a painfully young Brunello in need of cellaring. That said, the potential here is incredibly high. 94/100

Parker über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Parker: The Casanova di Neri 2016 Brunello di Montalcino (or the so-called 'white label' Brunello) takes a minute or two to open, and like all these new releases from the Neri family, you're best off opening your bottle five hours before serving them. This classic expression displays raspberry, tar, hazelnut, dried fig, asphalt and some crushed chalk. The wine is streamlined and compact in terms of mouthfeel, giving us an accessible Brunello from a benchmark Montalcino estate. 94/100

Suckling über: Brunello di Montalcino

-- Suckling: Tile and balsamic aromas with red plums and cherries. Full-bodied with a pretty center palate and ripe, rich fruit. It’s a little timid now, but shows violets, bark and black cherries at the finish. Drink in 2023. 93/100
