Fanti Brunello di Montalcino 2001
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.

Filippo Fanti is the owner of this small Tuscan estate located in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, an iconic village outside Montalcino. Filippo is also president of the Consortium of Brunello di Montalcino, the organization that regulates all wine production in this zone.
Wine and olive oil have always been produced here, but the decision to begin bottling these products under the Fanti label was made only in the mid 1980s. This has led the winery to completely modify its operating procedures and restructure its cellars, as it dedicates itself with an entirely new spirit.
Quality-oriented winemaking is led by consulting enologist and agronomist, Stefano Chioccioli, who is involved in all decisions made at Fanti. Together, he and Filippo are creating "best of class" wines that exhibit the character of this particular area of the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG production zone.
