Fanti Brunello di Montalcino 2015

Tuscany, ItalyThe Tenuta Fanti estate has belonged to the Fanti family since the beginning of the eighteenth century. It extends across 300 hectares in Toscana, 52 hectares of which are specialized certified sustainable vineyards, 110 hectares are olive orchards, 80 hectares are used for seed plots, and 70 hectares are forests. Made from 20-30-year-old vines, this Brunello fermented over 25 days in stainless before aging 28 months a mix of French oak barrels and 3,000L Slavonian oak vat. The wine then aged in bottle for one year prior to release. From the generous powerhouse 2015 vintage, this is dense with perfumed black cherry, cassis, threaded with tobacco and savoury dark chocolate that pull this to a warming, spiced finish. Tannins are ample and chewy at this young stage, while acidity is bright, ensuring a decent future ahead for this bottle.Tasted: 18 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 79.95 consignment Producer: Tenuta FantiDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
