Casanova di Neri was founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri and is now run by his son Giacomo.
Giacomo has spent several years acquiring the best possible vineyards within the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG area. He has recently re-developed the winemaking facilities at Casanova di Neri, and just completed an impressive underground winery and cellar. Giacomo’s passion and expertise, together with 66 hectares of vineyards distributed in the best areas of Montalcino, represent the ideal combination of producing wines with exceptional personality, uniqueness and recognisable characteristics.
The Casanova di Neri vineyards, set on the various slopes of Montalcino, are influenced by radical differences in soil, microclimate and surrounding vegetation, while maintaining a maximum separation of just one kilometre.
Although primarily an advocate of Brunello, Giacomo has recently experimented with international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon for his Pietradonice DOC. Casanova di Neri is now recognised as being one of the finest producers in Italy. Giacomo has consistently been awarded Tre Bicchieri by the Gambero Rosso and received international recognition in the wine industry's most important publications. www.casanovadineri.it
