More about this Producer
A true country gentleman, time seems to nearly stand still as you listen to Flavio speak about his vines, as if they were his children. There is no foreign investment here, no group of Swiss doctors or Pinot Grigio magnates from the north. No Syrah, Merlot or Cabernet planted anywhere near his land! And adamantly: “No barrique”.
The 18 hectare family-run winery and vineyards are situated on the south-eastern edge of the Montalcino DOC in the tiny village of Castelnuovo dell’ Abate. Flavio Fanti is a traditionalist – utilizing large Slovenian and French oak for his Brunello. However, he strongly believes that wine is a product of fruit and anytime fruit is consumed it must be ripe and mature.
