Mission Codename Full send

Giovanni Neri calls it “controlled power.”

But the price on this glorious 100 point Brunello is OUT OF CONTROL TODAY!

Tenuta Nuova in the house!!! Legit prices on this puppy start at $110 per bottle. And quickly shoots all the way up to $185, which really isn’t too much to ask for one of the greatest wines in the world.

Terrific accolades to back it? Where does one even begin?!

With a deep breath for starters.

How about a couple of 99-100 scores? Add a ton more just below those, along with a legacy of being a #1 Wine of the Year on Wine Spectator’s Top-100 list, one of the ultimate recognitions a wine can achieve. The proof is in the pudding, is in the tasting…

Maybe you remember we offered an allocation of the 2015 vintage - at a MUCH higher price. It still sold out effortlessly, faster than a red Lambo unleashed on the A16.

For that, we started a tradition, to compile our tasting note from those of the critics’ raves, rather than our own as this wine leaves us tongue-tied and twisted. By the way, we ran out of space below with the massive ratings and reviews, there are more if you are interested… “Class is the word.” (JS) “Pristine and polished with masses of personality” (D), this “pioneering project” (LG) is “impressive as ever” (IWR) as it’s always *“one of my sweetheart wines from Montalcino.” (WA)

But $79? How on earth??!

More could be said, but one fact stands out: BEST PRICE GUARANTEE by a mile.

A no-brainer, investment-grade collectible Brunello. Not much else to say here, or see really, just a lot of DO. But as the late Master Yoda said, “do, or do not, there is no try.”

100 Points – Luca Gardini

“A pioneering project both in vineyard and wine for a single-varietal Sangiovese Grosso showing a wonderful strength. Taut and vertical nose with clear aromas of fruits of undergrowth, blackberry dominating, pepper leaf and a balsamic trace. The mouthfeel is elegant, intense and equally salty. An officinal note returning at the end.”

99 Points – James 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.”

98 Points – 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.”

97+ Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“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. Drink 2024-2048.”

97 Points – 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. Drinking window 2024-2040.”
