Giacomo Neri is one of Montalcino's greatest producers. His wines, characterized by an emphasis on fruit and opulence, always rate among the highest in the region.

"It takes only a few moments before you appreciate the enormity, intensity and overall beauty of this landmark wine. Cerretalto is always a high scoring expression of Brunello, but the ideal conditions of the 2007 vintage elevate it to earthly perfection. Dark and fleshy, the wine delivers ever-evolving aromas of dark fruit, chocolate, spice and tobacco. The acidity is carefully balanced against the wine’s thickness and rich texture. The finish is long, luscious and elegant."

"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto ... racier and more polished ... It boasts superb aromatics, silky tannins and extraordinary textural finesse ... Today it is stunning."
James Suckling (JS): 97
"Wonderful aromas of dried berries and raspberries with hints of milk chocolate and blueberries. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long delicious finish ... Wonderful wine as always."
