#toscanaigt blend with heady bramble, warming spices, leather and tobacco fragrances. Medium-heavy bodied, dark fruit immediately followed by coffee, tobacco more noticeable on palate with plenty of acidity and tongue-hugging tannins. Nice choice to pair with chanterelle and mushroom risotto. Costco wine for ~$10 - worthy QPR. — 9 months ago
Thick, viscous, notes of honey and molasses. Heavy stuff.

Tenuta Fanti Brunello Di Montalcino DOCG 2015: Medium-bodied. Medium tannins. Bright aromas & taste. Cherry, floral and spice on the nose. Cherry, plum, earth, herbs & leather on the palate. Balanced acidity with a soft, attractive finish. All in all, drinking great now however huge potential; maturity will only benefit this wine as right now it’s checking all of the boxes. Simply said, this is elegance in a bottle! Additionally, what better way to enjoy this Tuscan beauty but with some shaved truffle & vegatable risotto! Cheers🍷 — 6 months ago
This bottle was one in a brace of Brunellos, generously shared and curated by our friend Tim.
Served blind after a lengthy slow-ox, I knew we were drinking Brunello di Montalcino but that’s it. Visually, there were no obvious signs of age. Initially quite reticent, I found this slow to come around but after an hour or so in the glass, it became quite the charmer! Tart cherries, black tea, earth and minerals. Long, lip smacking finish. Great balance. Seemed ultra traditional to me.
Revealed to be a 1997 “La Palazzetta” Riserva. There seemed to be a youthfulness about this wine that belied its 23 years of age. I have little doubt that we’ll stores examples will be drinking well in 2030. Killer with meal of certified Piedmontese eye of ribeye and simple pasta with red sauce. — 10 months ago
