About the wine

Tenuta Fanti is owned by the Fanti family since the early 18th Century and has always been a reference for the production of wine, extra-virgin olive oil and cereals in the area of Montalcino. Today, thanks to Filippo’s forty years of experience as wine-grower and to the energy and determination of Elisa, his daughter who joined the family company in 2007, the reputation of the Fanti brand keeps growing. The strong eco-friendly approach to agriculture and the respect of the soil and of the natural cycles allow Tenuta Fanti to offer top quality products to its consumers.


Deep ruby colour. Charming nose of ripe red fruit such as blackcurrant and cherry, spices and hint of liquorice. The palate is rich, full bodied and complex. The tannins are dense, already well integrated and supported by the structure of the wine. Fresh and slightly savoury long finish.


Pairs very well with mushrooms, grilled red meat, duck breast and aged cheeses.


This Brunello is made from the grapes coming 4 vineyards – containing vines 35 years old on average – located in the area named “Vallocchio”. This area being the very heart of the estate.
