JS: This is a deep and rich red with dark-chocolate, clove, smoke and leather aromas, mingled with dried tangerine peel. It’s full-bodied and dark with an earthy undertone. Fine-grained tannins. Lots of bark and cacao on the finish.
WA: This wine sources its fruit from a five-hectare vineyard, rich in friable schistous Galestro soil at a moderate (and warm) 250 meters above sea level. The Fanti 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Vallocchio shows roundness and softness with hints of elegant mineral and warm soil at the edges. The core of this full-bodied wine is packed with purple and black fruits such as plum and blackberry. Like the 2015 vintage that I remember well, this 2016 release also shows pretty elegance that shines through the more robust nature of this vineyard site.
Jeb Dunnuck : The 2016 Vallocchio Brunello di Montalcino offers more brooding aromatics of pine, baking spice, black cherry, and baked earth. The tannins are more present and building than the “normale,” though the structure is still well-integrated and feels weightless. This should be enjoyable 2022-2042.
