“Best Buy.” One of the “Year’s Best Tuscan Reds.”

This wine combines red-berry flavors with notes of fennel, bay leaf and roasted tomato in a mid-weight structure. The tannins feel fine-grained, giving the wine immediate appeal.

One thought on “Wine & Spirits: Barbi 2012 Brunello “Best Buy,” one of the “Year’s Best Tuscan Reds.”

  1. The 2012 Barbi Brunelli Montalcino is a truly lovely wine. It opens with the lively floral spice of Sangiovese on the nose, the color is bright with hints of orange on the outer rim.
    I can’t say enough about this wine without being aware of the team that makes Barbi one of the finest Brunello producers in the Montalcino area.
