We are THRILLED to announce that Court of Master Sommeliers member Craig Collins, MS, will be joining Siena on Wednesday, March 27 for a tasting of Italian wines including the highly-rated Brunello di Montalcino by Casanova di Neri, one of Italy’s most coveted and collected wines (see menu and wines below).
Here’s what Robert Parker, Jr.’s Wine Advocate had to say about the 2007 vintage (93 points) that Craig will be pouring:
“The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino bursts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, violets, leather, licorice and black cherries. Firm underlying tannins lend vibrancy to the voluptuous fruit. The Casanova di Neri straight bottling – sometimes referred to as the “white label” – is made from some of the estate’s cooler sites. In 2007 the wine has more depth, fruit and overall harmony than is typically the case. Bright acidity frames the long, polished finish. In short, this is a fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. Along with the 2006, the 2007 is one the best and most complete vintages I can remember tasting in some time. Most importantly of all, though, it is flat-out delicious.”
