This winery was founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri who with his great vision and passion understood the huge potential of wine in the Montalcino territory, and was passed on to his son Giacomo in 1991. Casanova di Neri does in fact stands for the Casanova Estate of the Neri Family.
The production started in the Eastern part of Montalcino and was extended later in other areas. Currently the estate covers a surface of around 500 hectares of which 63 are vineyards, 20 olive groves and the rest arable land and forest.
The Casanova di Neri winery is mostly underground; this allows the processes to be kept naturally cool without the use of air conditioning or temperature control. It has been built on three different levels to take advantage of gravity during the winemaking process.
Casanova di Neri is the outcome of a process of productive and philosophical evolution, a new vision of Brunello di Montalcino that interprets tradition in a different innovative way. A profound commitment and respect for the land, a conviction that it is the lynchpin for the production of unique wines and that the care given in treating the grapes in the winery according to their varying characteristics is what we value most.
The care and passion in working the land has to take into account the characteristics of the land, the microclimate and the variety so as to produce a unique distinct wine able to express its territory. For over forty years our evolution has been marked by careful targeted choices that have distinguished our estate and the wines we produce creating their own style.
Gaja is one of the stars of the world wine scene, a producer that is widely credited with transforming not just the image and international reputation of its native Piedmont region, but of Italy as a whole. It has had a significant impact on the way that Italian wine is grown, made, priced, distributed and marketed.
Gaja, founded in 1859, with only two hectares by Giovanni Gaja, whose ancestors originally came from Spain in the 17th Century, is now run by Gaia Gaja, the fifth generation of the family to make wine in Barbaresco. Each generation saw expansion, although Angelo Gaja, who took over full-time in 1970, is often credited with the estate’s more recent success. Angelo is sometimes regarded as one of Italy’s leading modernizers – the counterpoint to Bruno Giacosa, Barbaresco’s other superstars.
Gaja is best known for the reds it makes in Piedmont and Tuscany, but around 8 percent of its production is white. There are four vini bianchi in the Gaja portfolio: Vistamare (a blend of Vermentino and Viognier), Alteni di Brassica (a Sauvignon Blanc), Rossj Bass (a Chardonnay with 5 percent Sauvignon Blanc) and, best of all, Gaia & Rey Chardonnay, which ages remarkably well.

More fruitful and juicy than another Barbera d’Alba’s, with a slightly crispiness. The price is high compared to another Barbera d’Alba’s, but the quality is also high. Their tannins used to be hard, but now that the winemaker has been replaced by his daughter, the style is easier to drink. KH-17/20

Light and easy for an 80% Pinot Noir, with white spice and vanilla notes from oak barrels. Brewed in the controversial terra-cotta oval tank (Amphora). The color is a pale, transparent gold, with crisp acidity and a refreshing mineral content. The attack is soft with some brioche notes in the aftertaste. KH-17.5/20
ELIO ALTARE Barolo Arborina 2014
Italy > Wine Advovate / Robert Parker 91, Vinos / Antonio Galloni 93, Wine Searcher Average rating 92
Not intense, transparent garnet, cedar, nutmeg, cinnamon and mint on the nose, Tight tannins, even at this age, the tannins are not so astringent, but elegant. A precursor of the “Barolo Boys”, who aimed to make Barolo drinkable at an early age. The “Barolo Boys” may be associated with modernity and heresy, but they focus true revival of the region’s wines. Their Barolo Arborina is one of the leading single vineyards in Elio Altare. KH- 18/20
濃くはないが透明感のあるガーネット、杉香、ナツメグ シナモン、ミントの香り。引き締まったタンニン、この年でもタンニンに収斂性は少なくエレガント。さすが早くの飲めるバローロを目指した”バローロ・ボーイズ”の先駆け。”バローロ・ボーイズ”というとモダンや異端児を連想するが、この土地のワインの真の復興にフォーカスしたといった方が重みが増す。バローロ アルボリーナはアルターレの中でも代表的な単一畑。
SAN PATRIGNANO Montepirolo Cabernet DOC 2016
Italy > Emilia-Romagna, Wine Advovate / Robert Parker 93, Vinos / Antonio Galloni 92, Wine Searcher Average rating 89
The color is black, transparent garnet, ripe blackcurrant and black fruit intensity. The tannins are super smooth in spite of the Cabernet Sauvignon and ten times reasonable than those of Grand Vin in Pomerol that costs about $2,000. This region seems to work very well with Bordeaux-type varieties and has a tendency to soften the thorny acidity. A long, lingering finish. The wine also contributes to society through a project that support young people recover from drug addiction. KH-18.5/20
