Fattoria dei Barbi is one of the oldest continuously operating wineries in the world. It was one of the founding estates of the Brunello di Montalcino appellation in the late 19th century and it was one of the founding estates of the Brunello di Montalcino consortium in the second half of the twentieth century.
Today, its wines are sold in more than 35 countries, including the United States, where it was one of the first estates from Montalcino to establish itself as a top producer of fine wine.
Its products are known for their originality and consistency, their high quality and their excellence among their peers.
And so it’s only natural that the owners and the management staff took great pride in seeing that leading Italian economist and industry historian Paolo Bricco cited Barbi as one of Italy’s blue chip products in a recent op-ed for Il Sole 24 Ore, Italy’s financial daily (akin to London’s Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal).
An investment in Barbi, he writes, is a “good one” and “it does good [for Europe and Italy’s economic health].”
