We couldn’t be more pleased with notes by the editors of Austrian wine magazine Wein Pur on the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino:
Fattoria dei Barbi 2011 Brunello di Montalcino
A refined and dense wine with savory flavor. Elegant in every way and approachable, with a lingering finish. Balanced and complete.
On the 2011 vintage:
A late vegetative cycle followed by a warm summer allowed growers to pick their grapes at just the right moment, thus ensuring high quality.
After tasting the wines at Benvenuto Brunello, the general impression is that the 2011 is already sharing its classic Brunello notes: Elegant fruit, good structure, smooth tannins, and great aging potential. These are wines that, in a certain sense, thanks to their simpatico natural character and simplicity, remind us of the 1999 vintage.
