    Brunello di Montalcino "Vallocchio" DOCG 2016

    This powerful and long-lasting Brunello from the great 2016 vintage is royal. Only the best grapes from our own vineyards are used for this Selezione. It perfectly embodies the powerful elegance of the great Tuscan red wines. Ruby red, with an expansive bouquet of rosehip, lilac and spices. One tastes the dense dark berry fruit, toasted and tobacco aromas accompany the firm, juicy and persistent finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Ripe, intense, floral-spicy aroma with dark cherries, raspberries and rose bushes. Dense palate with fine-grained tannins, very intense, punchy and engaging in the course, combines the ripeness with the freshness of the vintage." Weinwisser

    "Bright ruby red. In the nose inviting spice tones, of sage, mint, then of cherries and a hint of vanilla sugar rounds off the bouquet. Juicy and clear on the palate, opens up in many layers, slightly earthy undertone, yet elegant, also mineral, minimal bitterness, long finish." Falstaff

    "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Vallocchio from Fanti dials it up a notch from the straight Brunello di Montalcino. Darker, deeper and sultry, this displays notes of ripe blackberry and plums complemented by exotic brown spice and a hint of lemon confit. Its textures are like velvet being drawn across the palate, black-fruited and ripe, offset by tactile minerals and cooling herbal tones. This is youthfully monolithic and dense, only revealing its stern tannic core toward the close, where I'm finding notes of black tea, licorice and hints of cocoa." Vinous

    "Mocha, truffle, anisette and camphor aromas lead the nose along with a floral whiff of violet. It's full bodied and bracing, offering dried black cherry, licorice and tobacco alongside firm, close-grained tannins. Give it time to fully unwind." Wine Enthusiast

    "Vibrant cherry and currant flavors are framed by savory notes of leather, spice and wild herbs in this nimble, fluid red, whose tannins leave a dusty feel, with a fresh, lingering finish." Wine Spectator

    "This is a deep and rich red with dark-chocolate, clove, smoke and leather aromas, mingled with dried tangerine peel. It's full-bodied and dark with an earthy undertone. Fine-grained tannins. Lots of bark and cacao on the finish." James Suckling

    "This wine sources its fruit from a five-hectare vineyard, rich in friable schistous Galestro soil at a moderate (and warm) 250 meters above sea level. The Fanti 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Vallocchio shows roundness and softness with hints of elegant mineral and warm soil at the edges. The core of this full-bodied wine is packed with purple and black fruits such as plum and blackberry. Like the 2015 vintage that I remember well, this 2016 release also shows pretty elegance that shines through the more robust nature of this vineyard site." Robert Parker
