Fanti Brunello di Montalcino 750ml 2003     
Sku: 14416

Made from 100% Sangiovese grown in volcanic soils that are rich in minerals. The grapes were harvested during the end of September and the first 10 days of October. Maturation occurred in barriques for 12 months and then in large oak barrels for 1 year followed by an additional 6 months in bottle. 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.

The 2003 Brunello di Montalcino tastes just like it did when I tasted it from barrel two years ago. It possesses a plump, juicy personality, with plenty of up-front super-ripe fruit but no real complexity or length to speak of. Anything resembling varietal expression is far off in the distance. Fantiís Brunello is the most confused and confusing wine coming out of Montalcino. Three bottles tasted with consistent notes. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2013.
