TASTING NOTES
The White Label 2014 is extraordinarily unique throughout the history of Casanova di Neri.
For the first time since 1978 this Brunello is a blend between White Label, Tenuta Nuova and Cerretalto 2014 grapes. The black and bronze bands on the historical label remind that the last two have not been bottled in this year.
The 2014 vintage is one of the most elegant, complex and finest of ever.
The color is bright red, and fresh hints of young red fruits mark the intense bouquet.
In the mouth everything is perfectly balanced, from the vibrant acidity to the creaminess and the silky consistency. Tannins are extremely fine and precise.
Persistent finish and endless aftertaste.
