Fattoria dei Barbi 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore
94 points

Aromas of wild berry, leather, rose and tobacco leaf come together in the glass. The polished full-bodied palate doles out crushed raspberry, Morello cherry and star anise set against taut fine-grained tannins. Give this time to fully develop.

Underbrush, dark kitchen spice and woodland berry aromas lead the nose. The solid palate offers Marasca cherry, prune and ground clove alongside firm tannins.
