Monica Larner on 2010 classic Brunello: “I loved the mouthfeel of this beautiful wine” (94 points)

Here’s what Wine Advocate Italian editor Monica Larner had to say about the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino by Fattoria dei Barbi:

Fattoria dei Barbi 2010 Brunello di Montalcino
94 points

Fattoria dei Barbi’s 2010 Brunello di Montalcino starts with a tightly wound personality that begins to unravel slowly, one delicate layer at a time. As it does, you become aware of dried fruit, cigar box, crushed mineral, plum, tar and cola. The wine puts on a beautiful display. I also loved the mouthfeel of this beautiful wine: It is tonic, tight and brimming with energy. Well-integrated oak notes give the wine a spot of softness and velvety spice. This is one beautiful Sangiovese.
