Galloni on the 2010 Vigna del Fiore: 94 points “blossoms in the glass with notable intensity and breadth”

Here’s what top Italian wine reviewer Antonio Galloni (February 2015; subscribers only) had to say about the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore, Fattoria dei Barbi’s single-vineyard Brunello and the winery’s flagship wine.

94 points

Barbi’s 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore emerges from a parcel in Castelnuovo dell’Abate near Mastrojanni. Dark, powerful and intense, the Vigna del Fiore blossoms in the glass with notable intensity and breadth. Dark cherry, plum, lavender, Mediterranean herbs and smoke flow through to the textured, broad finish. Stylistically, the Vigna del Fiore is a bit richer and sweet through the mid-palate and finish than the straight Brunello bottling
