The 2006 Fattoi Brunello Di Montalcino is a light to medium bodied, integrated wine. On the nose, it has some unappealing notes of manure/barnyard as well as pleasant aromas of leather, oak, dark chocolate, raspberry and cherry. It has a nice acidity, refined tannins (decant for 30 to 60 min, but not longer) and a long finish. Drink now or hold for 5-10 years. My impression: NICE, 89 pts - borderline enjoyable due to the barnyard nose, perhaps time will smoothen it out. Tasted Apr/12.
