Monica Larner on Brunello 2011: “It tastes just great now with soft fruit layers and generous servings of black cherry and plum”

Fattoria dei Barbi 2011 Brunello di Montalcino
92 Points

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a steady and pleasing effort that shows dark fruit layers packed tight with spice and tobacco. Like many of the wines this vintage, Fattoria dei Barbi’s newest release is immediate and approachable. You can drink it now or wait a few years longer. It tastes just great now with soft fruit layers and generous servings of black cherry and plum. It shows a dense texture with sweet tannins on the close.
