Tenuta Nuova 2012 has balsamic and red fruit notes, while in the mouth shows itself with ripen and silky tannins which are supported by a vibrant finish. It is now enjoyable but capable of ageing for many years. This wine is persistent, velvety, and goes on for minutes once opened. It should be served at 16-17 C°, opening the bottle at least 2 hours in advance or alternatively decanting gently

Wine AdvocateThe Casanova di Neri 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a beautiful wine that recalls many of the stunning characteristics found in its high-scoring predecessor. I gave a perfect 100 points to the 2010 edition of this same wine. This expression, made two years later, continues in that tradition of excellence. The quality of fruit is profound and intense. The bouquet offers black cherry, spice, leather, balsam herb, cola and licorice. The complexity is absolutely impressive. The mouthfeel, however, is slightly thinner. The classic 2010 vintage is remembered for its twofold punch of elegance and power. Alternatively, the 2012 vintage shows aromatic intensity and less persistence on the finish, generally speaking. Having said that, this remains one Bellissimo Brunello.

Wine SpectatorCollectibles. Precise balance sets the stage for cherry, black currant, violet and tobacco flavors in this smooth, intense red. The tannins are present yet well-integrated, and this persists with echoes of fruit and tobacco. Reveals an element of spice on the aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2035. 5,355 cases made.
