Tasted the vertical they had at ZAP '09 last week. This '01 was impressive! It was delightful, complex & vibrant - still a great dinner wine! Read more

This was a fun Zinfandel for a long time too but the 2001 was a lighter style and probably won't endure as most of the Fanucchi Zinfandel. Read more

I cannot believe that this wine is only $29 a bottle! This 2001 Old Vine Zin comes from Peter Fanucchi's vineyards, where the family has farmed since 1906, and the pedigree shows here in this wonderful wine. The nose is all deep dark fruit, blackberries and spice. The flavor continues the blackberry spice flavors, with a big emphasis on the berry and currant notes and just a light touch of spice. After finishing a glass, I realized that I was still tasting the finish for an amazingly long time. A great offering from Peter Fanucchi, it is clear his wines age very well! Buy it and try it!

Its balanced fruit in Tuscan European Tradition. Designed to be savored with a meal & to truly age. This is a Tuscan style wine all the way! In December 2007 this wine has youthfully fresh fruit. In a blind tasting not knowing Fanucchi Vineyards you might guess this to be a 2005 or 2006! The fruit is a classic ripe raspberry with those deep smooth Old Vine Zinfandel tannins. This is a great all around wine at or near it’s peak. Most of what’s left is on sale while it lasts!
