New scores and tasting notes from Ian D’Agata (Vinous, April 2018):

Fattoria dei Barbi 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore
92+ points

Medium red with a hint of amber at the rim. Deep, perfumed nose of red cherry, cedar and violet. Enters juicy and round, displaying outstanding sweetness to the red fruit flavors, then more austere, with a noteworthy tannic spine providing backbone but also suppressing the fruit somewhat on the long, clean, flinty back end.

Fattoria dei Barbi 2013 Brunello di Montalcino
92 points

Bright red. Expressive aromas of red currant, licorice, flowers and tar. Floral, bright and subtle, with blood orange and red fruit flavors framed by harmonious acidity. Finishes suave, dry, and long. Lovely, elegant, old-style Brunello that will prove very food-flexible.
