Tenuta Fanti, Brunello di Montalcino, DOCG 2011

Grapes(s)    : Sangiovese

Description : 

"Fanti's 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a soft, luscious and ripe Tuscan red. You immediately feel the sunshine locked within the bold red fruit that is put on display. Black cherry, candied raspberry and spicy plum take center stage. The effect is broad, opulent and integrated. I would definitely put Fanti's newest release on a shortlist of delicious near-term Brunellos to drink with hearty pasta and wild boar sauce or grilled steak within the next five years." -RP'90+

"Complex, plush and harmonious, setting the stage for cherry, licorice, sweet spice and tobacco flavors. Should develop quickly, winning fans for charm and balance. Best from 2017 through 2026. 3,750 cases made." -BS. WS'91
