    Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

    Full, rich ruby red. Refined bouquet of raspberry, pomegranate and some white pepper. Sweeping and multi-layered on the palate with a very classic Sangiovese style, powerful, intense and at the same time very harmonious. With its noble tannin, it strides confidently into a long, fascinatingly deep finish. This wine from the excellent 2016 vintage sets a milestone in the long and successful history of the Fanti family. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is sweetly spiced, hauntingly floral and seductive from the first tilt of the glass. A dusting of confectioners' sugar gives way to bright cherries, candied orange, mint leaf and lavender to form an extroverted yet delectable display. It's seamless and silky in the mouth, with a subtle twang of citrus and vibrant acids that energize the expression, ushering in ripe red hints of herbal-tinged black berries. Rounded tannins come forward through the close under an air of licorice and violets. The 2016 is already so easy to like for its primary intensity, yet it should really be cellared for three to five years for maximum effect. It's a great value for age-worthy Brunello that overdelivers." Vinous

    "Though light on its feet, this red evokes plenty of cherry, wild thyme, eucalyptus and tar flavors. A vibrant acidity drives the finish, while mature tannins mesh nicely, echoing the cherry theme." Wine Spectator

    "The Fanti 2016 Brunello di Montalcino comes roaring out with terrific intensity and balance. This vintage certainly marks a landmark for the Fanti family as I don't remember a new release as confident and impactful as this. The wine is round and smooth, with layers of dark fruit, cherry and spice. These various aromas blend nicely, showing the right contrasts where necessary. This is a classic expression of the vintage with some of the extra texture and power that defines this estate located in the Castelnuovo dell'Abata area." Robert Parker

    "A red with dark cherry, plum and hints of milk chocolate on the nose and palate. It's full-bodied with layers of fruit and velvety tannins. Flavorful, if a bit tight at the finish. Serious Brunello." James Suckling
