Accolades / Brunello di Montalcino / Vigna del Fiore

Ernesto Gentili, one of Italy’s most acclaimed wine writers, re-tastes Vigna del Fiore 2013

Decanter magazine has called Ernesto Gentili “one of Italy’s most influential wine writers.”

You may remember that Ernest Gentili, one of Italy’s most respected wine writers, published this tasting note on Fattoria dei Barbi’s 2013 single-vineyard Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore, which he tasted at last year’s Benvenuto Brunello (the annual debut tasting of new vintages and new releases from Montalcino).

Earlier this month, he re-tasted the wine and included it in his recent round-up of top wines. Here’s what he had to say:

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

Fresh, elegant, savory, with density and harmony, balance and energy. It reaffirms the excellent impressions this wine made months ago at Benvenuto Brunello.
