Monica Larner: “This wine made me so happy…” 95 points Vigna del Fiore 2013

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

The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore is a superb wine from an estate that boasts some of the most prized pedigree in Montalcino. This wine made me so happy to taste. Its various elements of spice, dark fruit and textural fortitude come together with seamless precision. Of course, you get that bright acidity on the close that keeps the palate ready for the next sip. These characteristics bode well for its future cellar longevity. The winemaking style is classic and contemporary at once.
