Accolades / Montalcino

Greg St. Clair on 2010 Brunello: “I absolutely love this wine.”

Here’s what expert Italian taster and wine merchant Greg St. Clair had to say about the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino by Fattoria dei Barbi (scored 4.5/5 glasses):

I absolutely love this wine… The nose is full of earth, spice, leather, dried wild cherries and is a powerful statement from the nose. On the palate a classic, long, slightly leathery character is in the middle of a broad, rich and luxurious follow through. Layers of spice, plum, wild cherry, wild herbs in a long procession of flavors marching to the finish. In the finish a long, persistent and so satisfying end, Super wine.

There are still some bottles of 2010 available in the U.S. Check WineSearcher.com for availability in your area.
