Not only was he named “the best sommelier in the world” in 2010, but he is also one of Italy’s most famous wine professionals, a leader in a new generation of “celebrity sommeliers.”
He’s also one of the most respected and admired wine experts of his generation.
Late last week, he released his scores and notes from a panoramic tasting of the about-to-be-released 2011 vintage from Montalcino.
We were thrilled to discover that Fattoria dei Barbi’s bottling was included in the top 30 wines, with a score of 92 points.
Our wine appears at number 16 on the list.
