Regular price MYR 126.00
Wine Region: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Grapes: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese
This wine has an intense and bright ruby red color. It has undergrowth fruits aromas with delicate violet, sweet and strong spicy aromas. The taste is fresh and the tannins give longevity to the wine.
James Suckling 93 points - Plenty of black cherry and berry character with hints of flowers. Medium to full body, soft and fresh tannins and a clean and delicious finish. Lovely now.
Robert Parker 90 pts -Fanti's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a fruit-driven expression that makes a fresh and simple presentation. The wine tastes younger than it actually is, thanks to those notes of vibrant cherry and creme de cassis. There is a candied element as well that resembles sweet watermelon or peach. It's hard to determine where the wine's aging trajectory will take it. If all the fresh fruit fades, it's not clear what will replace it. But the wine is sturdy and firm in texture, so it might just keep us guessing.
