The Fanti family has been producing this wine for several years, supported by the world-renowned winemaker Luca Felicini. Brunello Ventolaio is an "old style" Sangiovese, which expresses typicality, cleanliness, complexity and traditional structure, and this is the reason why it deserves the worldwide fame it enjoys.
Even the vintage is extremely important, it is in fact ascertained that 2015 was, from every point of view, a memorable year for viticulture.
On the palate the wine is fresh, with good astringency, minerality and sapidity, but also full-bodied and with a long persistence.
The nose reveals fruity notes of black cherry and plum, which mix with aromas of incense and roasted coffee. But also leather (clean), hints of tobacco and spicy hints of black pepper, cinnamon and cloves. Floral hints of dried violet are added alternating with balsamic notes of peppermint and perceptions of black truffle.
An excellent and extremely complex wine, but still young: a great label, which should be arranged and forgotten in the cellar for at least ten years. An elegant glass, with a deep ruby red color tending towards black, to be enjoyed alone or in company.
A glass that certainly goes perfectly with important dishes such as game, grilled ribs, fillet with green pepper, roast beef and large roast beef in the oven.
