Located just below the village of Montalcino, Casanuova delle Cerbaie sits on 15 hectares. Most of the property is planted to vineyards but in classic Tuscan fashion, there are hectares of olive trees and forests too. The winery was founded in the late 1970’s but its current identity is much more modern. It was purchased by an American entrepreneur in 2008 who also happened to be a passionate wine lover and admirer of classic Brunello. With his vision and a strong local team in place, the wines are made in a very traditional style.
The 2010 is a masterpiece, with powerful fruit and structure. Casanuova delle Cerbaie has been delicious ever since its first release. However, even though we’re in 2019, this wine is still remarkably young, barely scratching the surface of what it will be. The fruit is dark and powerful with incredible length. It marries aromatic finesse and a supple mouthfeel with terrific persistence and length, characteristics generally reserved for the best wines in the world. Not an easy trick to turn but Brigidi’s ‘10 has both characteristics in spades.

“Beautiful sweet plum and berry aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, extremely soft textured and succulent. Very long and flavorful. A very balanced and pretty example of the excellent 2010 Brunello. Drink or hold.”

Drink with roasts of meat, perfect with leg of lamb.
