The estate CASANOVA DI NERI was founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri, who bought a large estate within Montalcino area...Since then his singular goal has been the search for land optimal for growing high quality grapes.
Since the time the founder passed away in 1991 his son Giacomo took over in running the winery looking after the vineyards and the cellar. From the initial 12 hectares of vineyards we reached today about 75 hectares.




Great quality of the vineyards, rigour, greatest care of the vines and the work in the cellar have led to have in the years prestigious acknowledgments: The Grand Prix and Gold Medal in Bordeaux in 1986, Wine of the year 2006 according to the prestigious American magazine Wine Spectator, perfect 100-point score by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate in 2015, as well as many other excellent and constant ratings received from Italian and international press

Giacomo di Neri

When a wine receives the perfect 100 -point score. When a winery is declared the best in the world. When all the critics agree and say - yes, he is the Number 1, what else can make that Producer? Is there a higher goal? What can be the future ambition?

For Giacomo Neri the answer is surprisingly simple:

“The wine! And again the wine. The wine, which is never the same, that is reborn in every vintage, and again expresses its uniqueness unattainable, that only the earth, only a small piece of land that is under a little piece of heaven can create. In addition to the extraordinary and unique terroir, a very simple concept based on a unique combination of passion, solid professional and technical skills, care and attention in the vineyard and in the cellar, and obviously great patience, determination and continuity in the creation and production philosophy.”


“Giacomo Neri makes some of the most exciting modern-styled Brunellos in the zone. Neri is a fervent believer in low yields, and while his wines boast notable concentration, they also show remarkable elegance and expressiveness”
