The 2008 vintage is the 30th for this label. For Casanova di Neri, it is a little great story of passion and love of their land and of their wine. A Brunello with great character that will have a long aging time in bottles. Great fineness, profound, elegant and complex in the Brunello style.
The 2008 Brunello presents as ruby red in color with garnet reflections and beautiful aromas of maraschino cherries, violets and red fruits. Great fineness in the mouth with a tannin that is still young but of excellent quality. The wine is long, elegant and persistent.

"The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino sweeps across the palate with superb richness and depth. Dark cherries, plums, spices, tobacco and menthol blossom as the wine opens up in the glass. A decidedly large-scaled, dramatic wine for the year, the 2008 impresses for its pure resonance and rich, enveloping finish. This is one of the most rewarding 2008s to drink upon release, but it should also age well for a number of years."
