Brunello di Montalcino

“Thank you, Montalcino!” One of Italy’s leading sommeliers on old-vintage Barbi Brunello

We just had to share this note, published last week by one of Italy’s leading sommeliers and wine professionals, Andrea Gori, on his Facebook:

When Sangiovese sings like this, the wine goes fast! Brunello di Montalcino Fattoria dei Barbi Riserva 1978: Prodigious nose of Mediterranean maquis, vibrant wild berries, tree sap and mustard seed, acidity and flavorful tannin that has retained its structure, with umami notes that coat your palate. Served at cellar temperature, this wine is so thirst-quenching — even with a heat wave outside — that I could drink the whole bottle myself! Thank you, Montalcino!

Thank you, Andrea!
