"Located just below the village of Montalcino, Casanuova delle Cerbaie is comprised of 15 hectares, 10 of which are under vine. This is northern Montalcino, so the wines express the cooler part of this area, and are always very feminine and elegant. A portion of the holdings under vine are located on the famed hill of Montosoli and the estate borders such esteemed neighbors as Pertimali, Valdicava, and Altesino. The wines are very traditional in style. Vinification is primarily in steel with elevage in Stockinger barrels from Austria."
