Wine SpectatorFabulous aromas of blackberry, cherry, meat and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with masses of velvety tannins and loads of fruit. This is a blockbuster. This shows fabulous everything. Very close to the legendary 1999. Best after 2010.

Wine EnthusiastBold brushstrokes of cocoa fudge, lavish vanilla, espresso bean, plum, leather and Indian spice create an expressive and flavorful whole. Silky tannins are framed by ripe red fruit and smoky roasted notes. A very good showing from one of Brunello's most recognized names.

Wine AdvocateFanti's deep, almost purplish-colored 2001 Brunello di Montalcino is a simple, one-dimensional offering showing notes of super-ripe, jammy dark fruit, raisins and licorice with good length and a soft, supple personality. Though well-made from a technical standpoint, it shows little of the complexity or pedigree that one expects from a Brunello. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018.
