FANTI SAN FILIPPO BRUNELLO 2006 750ML
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
93 AG / 93 JS / 92 WS
93 Points Antonio Galloni: The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino marks a significant change of direction from past vintages. The dark, heavy style has been replaced by a much more finessed, elegant expression of fruit. Sweet red cherries, crushed flowers, mint and licorice are woven together beautifully in this silky, multi-dimensional, graceful Brunello. Sweet notes from the oak are intermingled with floral overtones on the silky finish. The 2006 is the most interesting wine I have tasted from Fanti in quite a few years.
93 Points James Suckling: Plenty of plum jam aromas and flavors with lots of citrus fruit and chocolate character. Full body, soft and fresh. I like the juicy finish. Best to drink after 2014.
92 Points Wine Spectator: A dose of new oak lends vanilla and clove aromas and flavors, along with cherry and blackberry. There's a brightness to this red, and the tannins are well-integrated, despite being firm and dense. Fine length. Best from 2013 through 2025. 5,833 cases made. - Bruce Sanderson
