1999 Fanti (Tenuta San Filippo) Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1071987 98 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very dark in color, with aromas of raisin, blackberry jam, espresso and nuts. Full-bodied, with loads of powerful fruit and big, velvety tannins. Superconcentrated, layered and dense, with the structure of a great 1945 claret, such as Latour. Still a blockbuster. Spellbinding. Needs a little time. (JS, Web Only-2010) Inner quote mark

92 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full deep ruby. Superripe aromas of cassis, blackberry and licorice. Dense, sweet and impressively concentrated; a real fruit bomb in the mouth. Primary black fruit flavors are complicated by tobacco, chocolate and exotic oak notes. Finishes very long and sweet, with lush, ripe tannins. As youthful as this is today, it's already quite sexy. Inner quote mark (10/2004)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Rich, dark and lush, with liqueur-like aromas wafting upward from a sea of purple. An obvious entry into the 'modern' category of Brunello. There’s jammy, mouthcoating fruit and only modest acidity. Detractors may find it heavy and bruising, but fans will adore its weight and creaminess. (MS) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very, very deep purplish crimson. Intense and dramatic nose. It's a firework! Lots of dramatic oak. In barrique from “nine months until it's perfect”, according to the winemaker. Very good for the modern style. Well balanced. 18/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2004)
