That’s Luca Gardini in the photo above (taken from his Facebook fan page).

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.
