Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 98

A magnificent wine that shows massive structure yet loads of finesse. Dark-colored, with incredible aromas of blackberries, treacle tart and smoke. Almost meaty. Full-bodied, with fantastic silky and rich tannins. Goes on and on. Fanti is now one of the greatest producers of Brunello thanks to the help of consulting enologist Stefano Chioccioli.

($85) Full deep ruby. Superripe aromas of cassis, blackberry and licorice. Dense, sweet and impressively concentrated; a real fruit bomb in the mouth. Primary black fruit flavors are complicated by tobacco, chocolate and exotic oak notes. Finishes very long and sweet, with lush, ripe tannins. As youthful as this is today, it's already quite sexy.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino, good as it is, is rather perplexing. A dark ruby in color with much black currant fruit, mocha, and vanilla on the nose, its sizeable and supple body and its lengthy, warm, and velvety finish are those of a high class wine, but not a wine which seems to have much to do with Sangiovese and Montalcino. Frankly, it is surprising to see a producer with this institutional position release a wine of this type.

First scent is alot, the fruit pops out of the bottle. first glass did not meet the expectations based on the nose. 1 hour decanted, opens up very nice, long, balanced and well integrated.
