97 points Luca Gardini: "A project of great ambition for a wine now iconic. The nose is taut, vertical, with evidence of raspberry, balsamic touches of eucalyptus and a floral, tulip finish. The mouthfeel is crisp and dense, with saline-brackish tannins. The officinal trace return in the aftertaste. (Oct 2021)"

96 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "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. The Casanova di Neri 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is graced with a similar interlude of elegant rose or crushed flower that we saw in the annata wine. It appears more prominently here, and with more shape and focused intensity. Make no mistake, 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. But it also shows floral elegance and sour cherry freshness that defies our expectations of the vintage. Drink: 2024-2044. (Feb 2022)"

95 points International Wine Report: "Graphite, talcum and chalk are the primary scents of remarkable beauty and rarity which describe the primary profile of this young Brunello. In the secondary matrix notes of salted caramel, chopped almonds and mixed white flowers which suggest magnolia, hawthorn and jasmine slowly emerge. Full bodied, fine grain soft tannins and a juicy, biting finale which motivates a return to the glass. Professionals in a difficult year. Better from 2023."

94 points James Suckling: "Lots of red plums and cherries on the nose with a palate that has a full body, thick silky tannins and a fresh and flavorful finish. The tannins are in good balance against the ripe fruit. Fresh and transparent at the end. Drink or hold. (12/5/21)"

93 points Eric Guido (Vinous): "[$115 list] The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Cascina Nuova lifts up with a layered display of peppery herbs, musky plums, black raspberry, crushed stone, tobacco and smoke. It’s silky yet juicy, pliant and staining to the senses, offering violet and lavender tones balanced by cooling acids and hints of candied citrus. The 2017 really plays with the palate; it’s spicy, long and intense, and lightly structured yet classically dry. Balsamic herbs, salted licorice – it goes on and on like a spice box menagerie. An elegant pleasure bomb. Drink: 2024-2029. (Dec 2021)"

93 points Michaela Morris (Decanter): "Tenuta Nuova hails from Casanova di Neri’s Le Cetine vineyard in Montalcino’s south. With a full southern exposure from east to west, it is a sun soaked, Mediterranean expression of Brunello. 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. Drinking Window: 2023-2029. (Nov 2021)"
