Ripening process was slowly but consistent, also thanks to the big range between day and night temperatures right before harvest.

TASTING NOTES
The 2016 vintage gave a very drinkable Irrosso but capable of developing in to a richer wine over the years. The high pleasantness is combined with balance, harmony and velvety tannins typical of all Casanova di Neri wines.
The notes of cherry and violet prevail on small red fruits and balsamic hints while on the palate is a good balance between acidity and sweetness of tannins with a moderate alcoholic impact. Finish is bright and clean.
Ready to drink but able to age in the bottle for some years according to our philosophy.
