Winemaker Notes

Blend: 100% Sangiovese. Ripe and juicy, with deep flavors of rich cherry fruit and herbs.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 94
Wine Spectator
A big, powerful red, with dense tannins and black cherry and blackberry flavors. Balanced in a muscular way, this remains tight and brooding despite the long, fresh finish. Shows potential. Best from 2020 through 2038.
JS 94
James Suckling
A layered, rich wine with dried berry, peach pit and slightly bitter toasted oak. Full body, silky tannins and lots of rich, buttressed fruit. A structured, powerful wine. Needs three to five years to soften.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a dark and well-saturated wine that puts on a very nice show. It shows immediate fruit and spice and delivers these characteristics in a very direct and matter-of-fact manner. This is a proud Brunello with no hidden messages or meanings. It portrays the grape with honesty, placing emphasis on freshness and silkiness of tannins. Sweet cherry and cinnamon make for cheerful end notes.

Fanti Filippo and Elisa Fanti Winery Image

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.

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.
