Awards and honors
The brunello di Montalcino of the Fanti winery is tasty and elegant. The Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is a warm and charming wine always characterized by the tannins. The Brunello di Montalcino is severe and classic in the best interpretation of the term. First of all there is a careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard during the grape harvest, by manually picking exclusively those berries with a remarkable maturation and a great concentration with a previous sugar and phenolic analysis in every production area. There is a three selection process, followed by the destemming and pressing of the grapes. It ferments at 28°C and the maceration takes place in stainless steel tanks for 25-30 days with the pumping over. The malolactic fermentation occurs before the wood aging. This takes place in two different ways: one in French oak barrels and the other in medium size barrels for at least 24 months. A further aging period takes place in bottles for at least 4 months.
