2017 vintage will be remembered as one of the most distinctive in recent years.
The winter was pleasantly mild with temperatures above the average of previous
years, and low rainfall. The combination of these factors led to decidedly early
budding compared to the norm. A warm and dry month of March accompanied the development of the vegetative cycle. At the end of April, temperatures dropped significantly to almost zero degrees, without however damaging the
plants. In June, some rains followed the flowering phase which took place
regularly. July and August were rainless, and temperatures rose above average.
The yields of the 2017 vintage showed a decrease in quantity compared to
previous harvests, however, they produced wonderfully healthy grapes with ideal
ripeness.

Harvest:
 Manual, 2nd and 3rd week of September

Vinification:

 Winery selects the bunches manually before de-stemming and selecting the grapes with an optical selector. After that, spontaneous fermentation without added yeasts follows and maceration is facilitated by frequent pressing. Everything takes place in conical steel vats at controlled temperature for 24 days.

Ageing in oak barrels:

 30 months

Ageing in bottles:

 18 months

Giovanni Neri Tasting Notes: Bright and youthful red. The bouquet is powerful and complex, with all the ingredients of a generous vintage, such as 2017, expressing themselves: fresh white flowers, followed by intense and ripe scents of small fruits, such as cherry and wild blackberry. Finally, it shows the refreshing balsamic notes typical of every Tenuta Nuova. To the palate it quickly unveils its full, riche and intense character. Even in a Mediterranean vintage as 2017, its balance is unmistakable. The tannic texture blends perfectly with its acidity, giving birth to an elegant and persistent ending. A very enjoyable vintage, from now, which will nonetheless surprise us in the years to come.

Reviewed on 18th Feb 2022: This is one of my all-time favorite Brunellos, and although personal tastes are fluid and may change from time to time, there is something timeless and solid about this wine. It's like a touchstone. The Casanova di Neri 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is graced with a similar interlude of elegant rose or crushed flower that we saw in the annata wine. It appears more prominently here, and with more shape and focused intensity. Make no mistake, Giacomo Neri builds wines for pleasure and sensual impact, and this wine (helped by a hot growing season and 15% alcohol) ticks all those boxes. But it also shows floral elegance and sour cherry freshness that defies our expectations of the vintage.
