It was no small undertaking: Nearly 20 of Italy’s most renowned and respected wine writers and professional tasters gathered recently for a marathon blind tasting of new vintages from Brunello di Montalcino (2011 and 2012).

In the end, of the 94 wines they tasted (yes, 94!), they named their top 20 labels for cellaring now.

We couldn’t be more thrilled that Barbi was among them.

The event and review was organized by La Repubblica, one of Italy’s national daily newspapers and a leading resource for wine lovers.

Check out the article here. Even if you don’t speak Italian, you won’t have any trouble reading the writers’ list of 20 best wines from Brunello di Montalcino. It’s good company to keep!
