1999 Tenuta Fanti Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. Tuscany, Italy.
Robert ParkerThe 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. Drink: 2005-2018.
Wine SpectatorVery dark in color, with aromas of raisin, blackberry jam, espresso and nuts. Full-bodied, with loads of powerful fruit and big velvety tannins. Super concentrated, layered and dense, with structure of a great 1945 claret, such as Latour. Still a blockbuster. Spellbinding. Needs a little time, best After 2012. 3,080 cases made.
