The dark heavy style has been replaced by a much more finessed elegant expression of fruit.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. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

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.

From southwest facing hilly vineyards 150-300 meters above sea level the 2006 Fanti was matured in 2.25 hectaliter barriques for 12 months and then in large French oak barrels for an additional 12 months before being bottle aged for at least six months. The 2006 stands out among its peers for being very unique. It is a very pale red in color with sweet red and blue fruit aroma complemented by dark florals. This modern styled Brunello is very balanced with tannins that gracefully unfold over the palate before turning into a luscious velvety finish. Drink 2011-2021.
