2006 Franci Franca Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
Made by the famed, international oenologist Alberto Antonini, this Reserva has grown on the slope of the ancient manor of Velona disclose all the flavours of the noble land of Montalcino. Only 1,300 bottles made of 100% Sangiovese grapes; 2006 being the most sustainable and 'to keep' BdM; Reserva the top-top Cuvee from Franci Franca. We all like this wine for being well made, which combines well the traditional and modern elements. It is RP95 and JS94.
“The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Franci is striking and impresses for its delineation, class and sheer vibrancy. Mint, licorice and floral notes add complexity to the expressive fruit in this fabulous, classy Brunello. I am not sure what Fabio Tassi did to reach this unprecedented level of quality, but it worked. This is easily the best wine I have ever tasted from Tassi.” – R. Parker
