Incredible aromas of blackberries, hot crush stones, cinnamon, dried flowers and cedar. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a powerful finish. This underlines the focus and beauty of the post-modern Brunellos. Drink or hold.
Dark in color with intense blackberry, chocolate, and lightly toasted oak. Full-bodied and ultra-velvety, with tannins that caress your palate. Vanilla, chocolate and berry. Goes on for minutes. Mind-blowing. *#1 Wine of the Year in 2006 - Collectibles* (JS)
The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is an interesting proposition. Either the wine has not fully opened, or perhaps it remains stuck in a shy or reticent phase. There is so much brooding dark fruit, right there at an arm's distance that, seemingly wants to bubble to the top. For whatever reason, it remains stuck at the back. Maybe it needs more time? The wine flaunts deep concentration and an inky dark appearance. The bouquet is all about those dark fruit tones with blackberry pie, black spice, tar, licorice and smoke. Mineral notes and campfire ash appear on the dusty, polished finish. (ML)
The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is Neri's more modern-styled Brunello. It is made from vines planted in the southern part of the zone and aged in small oak barrels. It displays a darker, almost saturated color and notable concentration with masses of sweet dark fruit, smoke and licorice flavors that flow onto the palate with exceptional length and balance in a powerful, brooding style.

A beautiful showing thanks to rich red fruit, pomegranate, blackberry, plum, menthol and heavy toasted notes such as clove, vanilla, almond and coconut. Rich, supple and inky, this is a big, bold wine that should be opened 5–10 years from now.
From a vineyard in the southwestern zone of Montalcino (CK), Tenuta Nuova was planted in (CK). It produced a soft, lush wine in 2001, packed with cherry flavor and floral accents. Tannin keeps it directed, tightening the finish, suited to several years of age.
