Fanti Tenuta San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino 2007

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The area of vineyards has been developed in the amphitheatre of the south facing hills of Castelnuovo dell'Abate, at 350-430m asl, a part of which are to be found quite near the wonderful Roman Basilica of Sant'Antimo, and the rest in the hill side slopes from Castelnuovo dell'Abate toward Orcia. The soil is limy with stratified formation of "galestro" (marls). The climate is extremely particular and at one and the same time favours robust and elegant wines because of the strong exposure to the sun during the day thanks to the configuration of the hills where the vineyards are located, with a good thermal drop at night due to the fresh winds coming from nearby Mount Amiata.

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. Best from 2014 through 2028.-B.S. Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Fanti Brunello di Montalcino 1500ml

Aromas of blueberries and bacon and hints of wet earth. Full body, with velvety and round tannins and a juicy finish. Wonderful finish of fruit and meat. Opulent and soft. Better in 2014. Best Fanti since 2001. James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Fanti (Tenuta San Filippo) Brunello di Montalcino 1500ml

This fine and delicate Brunello shows soft elegance and sophistication in the form of cassis, wild berry, white pepper, root beer, toasted nut and smoky cigar tobacco. The mouthfeel is firm, clean and tonic with elements of tannic structure and fresh... Wine Enthusiast. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2007 Fanti Brunello di Montalcino 1500ml
