Winemaker's Notes

#23 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006!

Fanti's Brunello is red ruby in color with violet shades and garnet-red tones. The taste is sweet and silky with very well balanced tannins and fruity and spicy sensations.

Critical Acclaim

"Fabulous aromas of blackberry, cherry, meat and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with masses of velvety tannins and loads of fruit. A blockbuster."
96 Points

"Bold brushstrokes of cocoa fudge, lavish vanilla, espresso bean, plum, leather and Indian spice create an expressive and flavorful whole. Silky tannins are framed by ripe red fruit and smoky roasted notes. A very good showing from one of Brunello’s most recognized names."
93 Points
