A blend of Sangiovese (90%) Cabernet Sauvignon (5%) and Petit Verdot (5%).
Irrosso (or IrRosso) is Casanova di Neri’s most recent creation. It is made primarily from relatively young Brunello (Sangiovese) grapes from the Fiesole vineyard which is located next to the winery and small amounts of Colorino. It is blended with a small portion of Bordeaux grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, from the Neri vineyards in the southern part of Montalcino. This wine is the most approachable of Neri’s wines at an early stage of development, but can still age well.
Brambleberry, walnut and bark with some black truffle, following through to a medium to full body with firm, solid tannins and a medium finish. A little tight now. Try after 2023. 7/2021.
