Two brothers, Alessandro and Gian Natale Fantino, run this family estate in Monforte d'Alba. Alessandro managed the vineyards and served as the enologist at Cantina Bartolo Mascarello for 20 years, from 1978 to 1997. Since 1998 he has dedicated himself to running his family estate alongside his brother full-time. The Fantino brothers produce a "Rosso dei Dardi" from younger vine Nebbiolo planted on a west facing slope. The Rosso is playful, fruit-driven, fresh, and aromatic.

89 pts Vinous

The 2015 Rosso dei Dardi is 90% Nebbiolo, with dollops of Freisa and Dolcetto. A racy, boisterous wine, the 2015 offers exceptional depth, color and intensity, especially at this level. Sweet red plum and spice notes hit the palate in an exuberant red to drink now and over the next few years. The richness of the vintage comes through loud and clear. The Rosso dei Dardi makes a fabulous house wine or by the glass pour.
