2006 Fanti (Tenuta San Filippo) Brunello di Montalcino

2006 Fanti (Tenuta San Filippo) Brunello di Montalcino with Pasta Carbonara last night. I liked it OK and bought it at a very fair price several years ago. Cherry, spice and licorice dominate but the tannins are slightly drying and bitter. Could use a little more elegance and refinement. In a banner vintage like 2006, this is a very average effort IMO. I continue not to love the “F”s in Brunello…Fanti, Fuligni and Frescobaldi. My last bottle.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
