Montalcino / Vigna del Fiore

Leading Canadian wine blogger Joanie Metivier tastes Fattoria dei Barbi

We were thrilled to come across this fantastic post by leading Canadian wine blogger Joanie Metivier, who tasted a flight of current releases from Fattoria dei Barbi earlier this year.

“As soon as the servers started pouring the samples,” she writes, “the whole room was filled with the magical smell of the wines.”

Click here for her tasting notes and impressions, including her thoughts on the ongoing debate over whether the Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore (single vineyard) or the Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is the greater of the two wines.

She’s one of our favorite wine bloggers and it’s a great post… Thank you, Joanie!
