Brunello di Montalcino Vallocchio 2011 Tenuta Fanti
Price per 6 bottles €150,-
(€25,- per bottle)
With fruit sourced from the Castelnuovo dell'Abate subzone, the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Vallocchio is a plump and delicious wine that bursts open with bright red berry, cherry and blackberry. The bouquet is soft, seamless and packed tight with gorgeous intensity. This is a delicious wine and I enjoyed the 2011 version over the highly applauded 2010 vintage. The alcohol is high (at 15.5%) and the wine is not too profound or complex. But it definitely offers an extremely enjoyable and approachable style that can be consumed shortly after the wine is released.

Shows very ripe fruit character but remains fresh and flavorful. Flamboyant, with plum, cherry, chocolate and walnut aromas and flavors. Opulent and delicious.
