A big, rich style, boasting plum, soy and tobacco aromas and flavors. Features good acidity and firm tannins that bode well for development, with just a touch of heat on the finish.

Moderately saturated medium red. Musky plum, redcurrant, leather and mocha on the slightly wild nose. Sweet plum and leather flavors could use a bit more primary character and verve but offer immediate approachability. Finishes with serious dusty tannins that turned a bit dry with aeration.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino wafts from the glass with sweet red cherries, crushed flowers, spices and licorice. Ripe, silky tannins frame the long, polished finish. This is an especially refined, gracious Brunello from Fanti.
