Casanova de Neri Winery in Tuscany
One of the many outstanding wineries in the Tuscany region is Casanova di Neri Winery in Montalcino, Sienna. We didn't sample the wines but Sienna is worth the trip to see. These award winning wines are very popular and many flock to this estate for tasting and touring of the wine cellar. Photos and more...
"Casanova di Neri is one of the most prestigious names in the international winegrowing sector. The strength of the estate, established in 1971 by Giovanni Neri, continues to lie in the fact that it is a family run concern by small numbers. Giacomo’s passion and expertise, together with 135 acres of vineyards distributed in the best areas of Montalcino, represent the ideal combination of producing wines with exceptional personality, uniqueness and recognisable characteristics. A perfect example is the Brunello 2001 Tenuta Nuova, classified first in the Top 100 of the authoritative American magazine Wine Spectator, distributed all over the world." They make rich olive oils as well as wines. For more info, visit the winery here.
