The Casanova Di Neri Sant'antimo Rosso 2008 is a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Colorino with the alcohol coming in at 14.5%. The first impression is a great one, the nose is awesome, very vibrant, it really draws you in with aromas of blackberry, sour cherry, plum, cedar, violet and spicy notes. The palate has loads of energy, spicy fruit flavours, fresh acidity and silky tannins. Long sweet and sour edged flavours of berries, cherry and plums with dusty tannins on the finish. A gorgeous wine, really enjoyable and at a great value. Strongly recommended

I'm not quite sure what the difference is between this wine and Neri's Rosso di Montalcino. Whatever, this is a lovely red which nicely combines a modern approach to sangiovese without losing its Tuscan character. Pure, ripe red fruit without any gaps in the palate. Long finish with some noted tannin. Very good indeed now, I think better in 2-3 years. Very fairly priced at about $24.
