On a boat with a Fanti
On a boat with a Tenuta Fanti – Brunello di Montalcino Vallochio 2011
Last weekend it was warm and sunny, so a perfect weekend to take a boat trip. To make the day even better we took a bottle of Tenuta Fanti with us. Tenuata Fanti is a wine house owned by the Fanti family since the beginning of the 19th century and I am slightly in love with it because of its great value for money.
This bottle is from the Castelnuovo dell'Abate subregion. This Sangiovese is aged 30 months in oak and 12 months in the bottle before it is released.
After opening the wine, the bouquet directly shows its very ripe fruit, mainly cherry and blackberry tones. However, there are also some hints of chocolate in the wine. The wine is very high in its alcohol but still a very approachable Brunello. A beautiful bottle to drink under the sun while at sea. BOW 8
