“Wow!” Houston Chronicle on Vigna del Fiore 2012

Here’s what veteran wine writer Dale Robertson (Houston Chronicle) had to say about the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore, which he called a “Wow!” wine. Click here for his complete review.

2012 Fattoria dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore

I often stumble into wines that seduce my taste buds but haven’t passed through the official Chronicle tasting panel’s vetting process. This single-vineyard Barbi Brunello, sampled during a recent wine dinner at Backstreet Cafe, is one. Forewarning: only 3,900 bottles were made, so quantities are limited.

My score: 9.5 [out of 10 points]. “Voluptuous fruit. Many layers of intense flavors. Long, satisfying finish.”

Critical acclaim: Wine Spectator awarded a score of 94, and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate gave it a 93.
