92pt James Suckling

A fresh, fruity red with plum, chocolate and walnut aromas and flavors. It's medium-to full-bodied with round tannins and a juicy finish. Easy to drink now, but can age.

Tasting notes

Red, with yellowish orange hints due to the ageing process. Dry, velvety and austere, with a bouquet of faded rose, violet, spicy and rich with gorgeous ripe fruit, very aromatic. Aged 3 years in large oak casks and in bottles for the final six months. Pair with red meat, game, and pungent cheeses.

 

 

The origins of the company began when Antonio Sperone began making wine in 1911, and is now a wine-growing and wine-producing estate of great importance, combining rural traditions and modern technology. The current generation are the 4th of the family to carry on the traditions and values of their founders, with a deep rooted love and enthusiasm for their wines. Tenute Neirano is located in a lovingly restored 17th century villa built on top of a hill in Casalotto di Mombaruzzo, near Asti, in the heart of Monferrato. It is surrounded by 25 hectares of estate vineyards in the heart of the production of some of the top wines of the Piedmont region. The region is unique, it has a colder continental climate in winter, with low rainfall as a result of the rain shadow effect of the Alps, followed by warm dry summers.
