Palate Profile

Bright and youthful red. The bouquet is powerful and complex, with all the ingredients of a generous vintage, such as 2017, expressing themselves: fresh white flowers, followed by intense and ripe scents of small fruits, such as cherry and wild blackberry. Finally, it shows the refreshing balsamic notes typical of every Tenuta Nuova. To the palate it quickly unveils its full, riche and intense character. Even in a Mediterranean vintage as 2017, its balance is unmistakable. The tannic texture blends perfectly with its acidity, giving birth to an elegant and persistent ending. A very enjoyable vintage, from now, which will nonetheless surprise us in the years to come.

Critic Awards

This is one of my all-time favorite Brunellos, and although personal tastes are fluid and may change from time to time, there is something timeless and solid about this wine. It's like a touchstone. Giacomo Neri builds wines for pleasure and sensual impact, and this wine (helped by a hot growing season and 15% alcohol) ticks all those boxes.

Full-bodied, with muscular tannins supporting a ripe and transparent core of dark cherry, plum and blueberry fruit. Balanced and well done for the vintage. Chewy. Drinkable now but better in a couple of years.

The 2017 takes a bit of coaxing at first but then cherry bark, cinnamon, liquorice root and gardenia arise from the glass. Upfront, gritty tannins dissolve slowly into a fine dusty powder, revealing supple, round black currants. Citrussy acidity keeps this lively while dark chocolate and mint notes linger.

Expressive, complex and long, despite its compact profile today. Delivers black cherry, blackberry, violet, mineral and tobacco flavors that prevail, while assertive yet refined tannins leave their mark on the lingering finish. Best from 2025.
