Heiner Lobenberg über:
Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova 2016


Lobenberg: Im Nasenbild sehr fleischig, dabei hoch komplex. Alles wechselt zwischen rohem und gegrilltem Fleisch und Beerenaromen hin und her. Am Gaumen kompakt und gleichzeitig fein, immer eleganter werdend um dann in einen sehr feinen Gerbstoff überzuleiten, dann immer fester werdend, sehr präzise und lang. Dieser Wein hat eine ganz eigene Stilistik: sehr modern im Holzeinsatz, dabei beerig und intensiv, große Frische, Sangiovese in bester Form, samtig und vollmundig, sehr kompakt und überschwänglich, verführerisch und aromatisch, extrem vielschichtig. 97-98+/100


Falstaff über: Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova

-- Falstaff: Kraftvolles, leuchtendes Rubin. Beeindruckende Nase mit satten Noten nach Waldhimbeere, reifer, baumfrischer Zwetschge, dazu etwas Lakritze, spannend. Salzig und saftig am Gaumen, zeigt viel rotbeerige Frucht, öffnet sich dann mit feinmaschigem Tannin, geschliffen und überaus lange. 100/100


Suckling über: Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova

-- Suckling: Aromas of blackberries, cherries, violets and bark with mahogany. It’s full-bodied and chewy with intense tannins that are layered and focused. The fruit is pure and purposeful, yet not over done. Wonderful strength and purity to this. Class is the word. Try it after 2024. 99/100


International Wine Report über: Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova

-- International Wine Report: The 2016 Casanova di Neri Tenuta Nuova Brunello di Montalcino is as impressive as ever. In this vintage we get a refined and elegant rendition, which offers vivid aromatics of cherries and plums that are accented by dried exotic spices, dried florals, juniper berries and subtle hints of tobacco and minerals. On the palate this displays a wonderful pure character, with incredible focus and overall balance. It continues to impress with its impeccably detailed structure, which is supported by gorgeous fine silky tannins that are frame by lovely underlying acidity keeping it fresh and vibrant. Everything comes together gracefully on the beautiful finessed finish, before gripping a firm hold and leaving a lasting impression. There is no doubt that 2016 is another utterly brilliant release of Tenuta Nuova that will evolve incredibly well over time. That said, this leans more on the traditional side in terms of style, and will require some patience before it hits its stride. 98/100


Parker über: Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova

-- Parker: This is one of my sweetheart wines from Montalcino. The Casanova di Neri 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova offers a long list of aromas on an ever-shifting and fluid bouquet. You get bright cherry, rose potpourri, black truffle, caramel, butterscotch, sandalwood, road pavement and chalky mineral. In fact, each time I come back to this wine, that mineral element seemed to grow in intensity and scope. The wine offers a grounded fruit side that is contrasted nicely against a grounded oak component. The mouthfeel is creamy and long, and the wine shows terrific tannic integration. When you come back hours later, you might find black olive, bresaola and licorice. 97+/100


Decanter über: Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova

-- Decanter: Tenuta Nuova is Casanova di Neri’s southern expression of Brunello. Vines were planted in 1989 and Gianlorenzo Neri says they are now hitting their stride, giving wines with more persistence and depth than earlier vintages. The 2016 clearly demonstrates both of these attributes. It is not as immediate as the white label but unfolds decorously with earth, tar, leather, black currants and cinnamon. The tannins are refined, clinging to the palate with a clayey texture. Pristine and polished with masses of personality, the briny undertow cleanses the mouth brilliantly. Balsam and orange carry the finish. 97/100


Galloni über: Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova

-- Galloni: The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova drawing you in with a display of exotic brown spice, mint and cedar dust. Further coaxing unlocks depths of cherry, plum, hints of dark chocolate and roses. It coasts along a medium-bodied frame with velvety richness, complemented by polished red and black fruits while contrasted by brisk acids and hints of sour citrus. This coats the teeth in concentration, as if you can feel the pulp, seeds and skins of its fruit, while a layer of fine tannin slowly grounds you back to earth. The Tenuta Nuova already has so much to give, yet it will be many years before it reaches its apex. Wow. Thinking back to my tasting of the 2015, I can’t say that the 2016 is necessarily a better wine, just a little less immediate. Either way, both wines are beautiful expressions of vintage. 96/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2016 Tenuta Nuova has layered aromatics of black raspberry, menthol, baking spice and cedar. The palate is intensified and has another gear, with mouth-filling cherry fruit, tobacco, and a balanced but powerful structure. Enjoy a couple of the 2016 Brunello while you wait for this one in the cellar for 3-5 years and drink 2025-2041. 96/100
