Brunello di Montalcino 2013 Tenuta Fanti
Price per 6 bottles €150,-

Fanti's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a fruit-driven expression that makes a fresh and simple presentation. The wine tastes younger than it actually is, thanks to those notes of vibrant cherry and crème de cassis. There is a candied element as well that resembles sweet watermelon or peach. It's hard to determine where the wine's aging trajectory will take it. If all the fresh fruit fades, it's not clear what will replace it. But the wine is sturdy and firm in texture, so it might just keep us guessing.

JS: Plenty of black cherry and berry character with hints of flowers. Medium to full body, soft and fresh tannins and a clean and delicious finish. Lovely now.
